rate Alberta from Saskatchewan,
the territory encompassing Prim-
rose and Cold lakes is of great importance
to the Cold Lake First Nations (CLFN) com-

area is also home to the ever-expanding
Primco Dene Group of Companies, which
draws its name from the lakes and the
Dene language of the CLFN people.

opportunity to boost the economy of the
community and offer employment to its
members. Primco Dene was created to
occupy this niche.
Now Primco Dene has grown to incorpo-
business elite canada
