On April 1, 2020, Imperial Oil awarded Golder Associates Inc. a contract to remediate a 155-acre site near Tuktoyaktuk in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, Northwest Territories. The project team will include IMG-Golder, an environmental and engineering firm based in Inuvik, Nunavut. IMG-Golder is jointly owned by Inuvialuit business partners and Golder.
