Case Study:

Launching Petro-Canada & Petro Pass Truck Stop at Nakota Crossing

Client: Petro-Canada, Nakota Crossing
Location: Glenevis, Alberta
Industry: Retail / Gas Station and Truck Stop


The Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation aimed to realize a 55-year-old vision by developing a new-to-industry site at Nakota Crossing, seeking to enhance profitability and create job opportunities for the community. The project required strategic partnerships to ensure long-term success and align with community values.


MWA took the lead in securing vital partnerships, including a fuel agreement with Suncor for retail and card lock services, and Quick Service Restaurant partnerships with Mr. Sub and Country Style Donuts. MWA also developed an in-house hot-food program, designed store layouts, and implemented merchandising plans tailored to the local market. Collaboration with the Nation’s leaders ensured the project respected community values and principles.


The Petro-Canada and Petro Pass Truck Stop at Nakota Crossing now stands as a prominent facility on a busy highway, offering essential services to travelers and truckers alike. The strategic location, comprehensive service offerings, and easy access design have made it a key community asset. Most significantly, the project has provided numerous employment opportunities for members of the Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation, fulfilling a long-held vision and contributing to the community’s economic development.

The site was transformed to serve the needs of the region and bring in revenue for the community.
