Kinbasket Development Corporation
The Kinbasket Development Corporation (KDC) is a wholly owned corporate extension of the Shuswap Indian Band. KDC operates as a regular company, independent from Band activities, with a duly appointed board of directors and a full-time manager.
The Shuswap Band has long believed that government subsidies are not productive sources of income. Collectively, the Band prefers to take a proactive approach to financing their affairs. KDC was created to promote the economic and social welfare of the Band by developing and supporting independent business on the reserve.
The record of successful business development can, in part, be attributed to the strong partnerships KDC forms with investors. The goal in every on-reserve project is to create an environment of shared benefits for the investor and the Band.
