Aecon Makhos Power Seven Generations (AMP7G), a joint venture between Aecon and Makhos, an Indigenous owned and operated business, provide an Indigenous-led solution for high voltage transmission, distribution, and substation work, and related maintenance on utilities and nuclear projects in Ontario. Makhos holds a majority interest in AMP7G.
Combining the Indigenous staffing and training experience of Makhos with the construction, project management, power transmission, distribution, and substation capabilities of Voltage Power, an Aecon company, AMP7G performs work as a subcontractor to Aecon on existing utilities and nuclear projects.
Makhos is a Certified Aboriginal Business with headquarters in Neyaashiinigmiing, Ontario. The Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation occupies Neyaashiinigmiing on the east shore of the Saugeen (Bruce) Peninsula on Georgian Bay.
Makhos brings Indigenous knowledge and experience in high voltage utility, nuclear and reclamation efforts and combined with Aecon’s capabilities, AMP7G aims to create further balance within the power sector.
The partnership aligns directly with a key pillar of Aecon’s Reconciliation Action Plan – empowering Indigenous Peoples – as well as Aecon’s commitment to work collaboratively and support economic advancement and wealth creation in Indigenous communities to help build a sustainable future.
