Kyah Development Corporation (KDC) was established in 2006 to manage Witset First Nation’s business portfolio and investments. The goals are to separate business from the political council table and to enhance and promote the Band’s vision for economic development and diversification. Kyah Development Corporation has a five-member board.
Vision of Kyah Development Corporation:
“Our vision is to allow Witset First Nation and our Witsuwit’en people to realize their economic aspirations on the reserves and in the traditional territories and to be full participants on the economic prosperity in the region”
“Witset First Nation’s mission is to provide effective and innovative management of our business ventures and to identify and develop economic opportunities for our community and its members.”
Witset First Nation has retained Harris Palmer Consulting to perform a governance and structure review of Kyah Development Corporation. The final report and recommendations will be presented to the Board at the first inaugural meeting in 2018.
