WHEN WE STARTED

The O’Chiese Chief and Council initiated the business and investment centre in 2009 at the old band office building.

We quickly reached full capacity at the original building and needed to move the operation with 20 full time staff to another location.

Today, our offices have moved to the training centre and we are once again at full capacity.

We have created 70 fulltime positions within the business centre and that support all of our companies.

WHY WE STARTED

The O’Chiese Chief and Council wanted to create job opportunities for band members at home instead of working away from home.

They also wanted to create wealth for the present and future generations.

They didn’t want to keep receiving “Handouts” from the federal government.

They wanted to ensure there is a future for the O’Chiese First Nation.
