They are a FHQ Investor Partner with Tokata HR Solutions.  We are proud to work with Topa Contracting to help build their Indigenous workforce!


Topa Contracting Company Overview

Topa Contracting is the partnership between FHQ Developments and Noble Construction Corp. After working together through FHQ Developments Employment and Retention Services, both parties realized how closely their values and goals aligned, and the first steps towards the creation of their partnership were taken. In December of 2018, an official Pipe and Signing Ceremony took place at the First Nations University of Canada in Regina, Saskatchewan, which marked the birth of FHQ Noble Construction GP Ltd. In June of 2019, the partnership was rebranded as ‘Topa Contracting’. The word Topa means “four” in both the Lakota and Dakota language. Four is a number that carries much significance.


Topa Contracting is located on and is operated from Treaty 4 territory. In addition, Topa represents the four directions of a compass, the four seasons, the four stages of life, the mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical aspects of ones being, and finally, the four quadrants of the medicine wheel.


 The partnership provides knowledge, experience and client relations in the industrial construction sector while focusing on the diversity and inclusion that industry in Saskatchewan is trying to allow. Topa Contracting is one of the first true partnerships with a First-Nation majority stake holder. The partnership is based on trust, mutual contributions, and a long-term outlook. This is the type of partnership that will allow for growth and long-term benefits for all parties involved.


Vision – To create opportunity within our community, with a focus on First Nation inclusion in the Industrial, Commercial and Mining Construction sectors.

Mission – Through collaboration, create employment with a mindset around a diversified and inclusive workforce.

Topa Contracting provides service to many locations within Saskatchewan although not limited to this area, our head office is located in Esterhazy SK.


How does Topa Contracting supports the Indigenous Community

As a local contractor owned and operated within Saskatchewan, Topa Contracting believes in community.  They  recognize that employees who support Topa are supported by their families, friends, and community.  In order to complete that circle, Topa Contracting need to support these communities.  To accomplish that, Topa Contracting has a dual approach; to create meaningful and fulfilling opportunities for their employees with a focus on inclusion, and to give back to the many organizations, teams, and clubs that their employees and families are involved in.  This investment into our communities is what creates such a strong local workforce and provides Topa Contracting with exceptional employees.
