Building Economic Health for Future Generations
In January 2011, Səýeḿ was officially formed to take on Economic Development for the Kwantlen First Nation. The office is located on McMillan Island in Fort Langley, BC. The business arm was needed to manage the ongoing and growing business activities for the Nation.
Tirelessly achieving economic health for present and future generations while strengthening connections in our territory through responsible resource and land management.
Tirelessly building a prosperous economy through innovation, capacity building and strong partnerships while honoring our indigenous heritage.
The Seven Laws
We live by the seven traditional laws that guided our ancestors: health, happiness, generations, generosity, humbleness, forgiveness and understanding.
“Səýeḿ is professionally managed and a delight to work with… We are very grateful to be partners with their organization.”
