Information

Each of the Sawridge Trusts are governed by five Trustees, the same Trustees for both Trusts. The initial Trustees were appointed by the Sawridge Band Council. Three of the five Trustees are beneficiaries of the Trusts and two of the five Trustees are non-beneficiaries. All Trustees have a three-year term.

The current trustees are: Bertha L’Hirondelle, David Majeski, Justin Twin, Roland Twinn and Margaret Ward.

The Trustees are assisted by an appointed Chair of the Board, Brian Heidecker, who is not a trustee and by a Trusts Administrator, Paul Bujold, who is also not a trustee.

Through their two Holding Companies, the Trusts own a number of businesses which help to generate returns that support benefits for the beneficiaries to the Trusts. These businesses include: Sawridge Inn-Jasper, Best Western Sawridge-Fort McMurray, Sawridge Inn-Peace River and Sawridge Inn-Edmonton South.
