Diversified Economic Portfolio
In recent years, Yellow Quill Holdings has seen a need to expand and diversify its economic portfolio to ensure key business objectives are attained, this includes but is not limited to: long-term streams of income, return on investment, employment for band membership, continued business success off-reserve, fostering positive business relationships with industry and government via strategic partnerships, and new market entry that is conducive to building an on-reserve economy.
In early 2012, Carlton Trail Regional College and SIAST provided a 20 week welding program to 12 Yellow Quill band members - training was provided at the Archerwill property and was made possible through the Active Measures program by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada. Following completion of the training program, Yellow Quill Holdings anticipates possibilities of manufacturing at this facility.
To make certain the rich history, cultural significance, and sacredness of the traditional lands of the Saulteaux are respected and protected and to ensure various employment and economic opportunities are participated in by Yellow Quill – it was deemed essential that Yellow Quill work with Vancouver based, Saturn Minerals and other Saulteaux communities through Inowending Exploration and Development Corp.
The traditional lands in and around north-eastern Saskatchewan (i.e. Pasquia, Porcupine and Hudson Bay areas) are rich in natural resources and could prove to be a catalyst in wealth creation and prosperity among the various Saulteaux communities.
In accordance to Yellow Quill's TLE Framework Agreement, the First Nation has the ability to purchase quantum acres of an additional 100,000 acres of land as TLE and eventual conversion to reserve status.
To make certain all current and future land considerations are carefully scrutinized as investments – it is imperative that our land purchases take into consideration potential for resources and surface opportunities such as agriculture leasing. Strategic land acquisitions must be aligned to our core values; mission statement; and objectives as it relates to the resource sector.
Yellow Quill Holdings strives to become a top 10 First Nations economic development corporation that reflects our unique culture, language and history and is accountable to our community.
