Leading by excelling in what we do and delivering on our promises.


We place high value on each and every team member and continuously invest in our people through training, opportunities for advancement, and supporting services. We ensure that we bring on the right people who are aligned with our client first attitude and shared vision for where the company is headed.

The Tier 1 culture is about creating a company made up of people who genuinely enjoy their work and each other—who motivate others to reach their own goals, as well as the goals of the company. It’s about bringing together individuals that you can rely on.

Guided by this philosophy, we have created a culture that rewards bright and driven people who also make time for laughter and fun, and we take the time to celebrate extraordinary efforts.

Indigenous Relations

We, at Tier 1, strive to pursue relationships within the communities we operate our business in.  It is by being a supportive participant in the communities that the benefit of being a local supplier is truly realized.

Tier 1 is proud to have established our first formalized partnership with the Alexander First Nation. We are looking forward to getting to know the Alexander First Nation community better and to increase our involvement within the community.

Letter of Support
Helping to make our communities better places to live

tier 1 in the community

As an industry leader, Tier 1 will set the standard in corporate citizenship by encouraging our employees and community partners to support local charities, engage in their communities and support their professional associations.

Through focused leadership and support, we believe Tier 1 will play an important role in building strong communities in the areas we are fortunate to operate in. We encourage and support our employees to become a vital part of their local communities. We promote giving back by offering paid time off for our people to volunteer for the charity of their choice. By providing this opportunity we not only help many communities and charities, but also share in our employees’ sense of pride they get through giving back.
