The Kikinaw Story

As the president of Kikinaw Energy Services, Kory Wood is actively involved in promoting the British Columbia Peace region, local industry and First Nations.

Kory is a proud member of the Saulteau First Nations and long time resident of the Peace River region, growing up in Chetwynd, BC.

For four years Kory worked with youth from the Blueberry River First Nations, located 80km north of Fort St. John, BC. Through this work he found a passion for helping and working with First Nations people, something he has continued to do as President of Kikinaw Energy Services through the provision of training and employment opportunities for local stakeholders and First Nations people. 

As a young adult, Kory began working in various industries as an Electrician Apprentice. He obtained his Red Seal Certification in the electrician trade in 2011. In 2012, Kory gained his contractor’s licence in the form of a field safety representative certification from the BC Safety Authority.

With these credentials, Kory began Deldeko Industries Ltd. in 2013. Deldeko Industries was awarded their first electrical contract for upgrades at Blueberry River First Nations.

By summer 2013, Deldeko expanded to four employees and became the preferred electrical service provider at the Willow Creek & Brule Mines in Chetwynd, British Columbia. 

Kikinaw Energy Services was incorporated in December of 2013. In 2014, Kikinaw landed their first large contract for labour support at the Pine River Gas Plant Turnaround. Shortly after, Kikinaw obtained a Master Service Agreement (MSA) from Vestas Canadian Wind Technologies and grew to over 10 full-time employees.  Renewal of this MSA in 2015, allowed Kikinaw to expand their operations to various Wind Parks across Western Canada.

Growth in services, revenue and manpower continued in 2015 for Kikinaw. In early 2016, 2 privately held companies acquired minority interest in Kikinaw Energy Services.  The ownership group combines energetic and ambitious entrepreneurship with experienced proven practices. 2017 was a big year for Kikinaw as the company expanded to almost 50 employees and entered various Wind Energy Projects throughout the Canadian Maritimes.
