We support communities to achieve their long-term visions for development. Our Community Transformation Process is community-led, tailored to industry and county context. It combines traditional wisdom with innovative technology, for a truly sustainable model to development.
We apply tools and methodologies that are practical and proven approaches garnered from the Canadian Indigenous experience over the past 40 years, particularly in navigating opportunities and obstacles around natural resource management on traditional lands, building successful Economic Development Corporations, founded in a vision and good governance, and strong partnerships with the public and private sectors. The models of success we look to include: Tahltan Nation Development Corporation, Tlicho Investment Corporation, Des Nedhe Corporation and the Mississaugas of the New Credit.
As the traditional medicine wheel represents the interconnectivity of all things, the four directions, and the inclusivity of all human races (white, yellow, red and black), our approach is a continuous process employed to empower Indigenous Peoples achieve harmony and prosperity through self-guided economic development. Through this approach, we support Indigenous communities in Nation Building, which includes Economic Development, Sustainability (environmental and cultural) and Wellness (spiritual, physical, mental and emotional). This methodology, utilized within a framework of inclusivity of Indigenous Peoples, governments and commercial enterprises, supports strong, vibrant and resilient communities, organizations and Nations, with empowered and confident people, and prosperous partnerships.
