Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation (SNGRDC) was launched in May 2015 with the mandate to pursue economic self-sufficiency without sacrificing the cultural values and integrity of the Six Nations people.
The purpose of the Development Corporation is to generate income, outside of the federal funding, to tackle community priorities that affect the Six Nations Community as a whole. This includes improving social conditions, aiding in infrastructure development and creating a healthy & sustainable environment for individuals, families and businesses to thrive.
SNGRDC is governed by an overarching Advisory Committee, a Board of Directors and the Economic Development Trust together these governing bodies form the SNGRDC Group. This governance framework was developed following the Tewawennaró:roks – “We Gather Our Voices” community engagement project which gathered insight from the community regarding the creation of a community owned Development Corporation.
