About Tsain-Ko Group of Companies

Maintaining a Vibrant Economy for Current and Future Generations

As the corporate arm of the shíshálh nation, we build, manage and promote existing businesses that will generate wealth and opportunities for our members, partners and stakeholders.

Corporate Structure

Tsain-Ko Development Corporation is the parent company of the shíshálh Nation’s corporate  arm. It is the sole shareholder of the following Corporations:

Tsain-Ko Land Development Corporation which is the general partner responsible for the development of the Tsain-Ko Village Shopping Centre Limited Partnership (the operation and management of the Village Shopping Centre).

Tsain-Ko Forestry Development Corporation holds the forest license for the Nation. The current NRFL is for 162,700 m3, to be harvested over the next 5 years.

Our forest companies have long standing relationships with Capacity Forest Management for General and Logging Management and with A & A Trading for Marketing and Brokering Services.

As responsible stewards of the land we adhere to all the Nation’s stewardship goals and requirements for all of our operations throughout the territory. We are working with the Nation to convert the existing NRFL into an Area Based Tenure to provide long- term harvest opportunities.

Land Development: Tsain-Ko Village Shopping Centre

Phase 1 of the Village Shopping Centre is Extra Foods (the anchor) and the Gas Bar. Phase 2 is the 30,611 sq. ft. strip mall.  Unit 310 (between the Source and the Dollar Store) is currently our only vacant space – it is 1985.7 sq. ft.

We address all leasing enquiries, negotiate leases, communicate with the tenants and manage all Common Area Maintenance responsibilities, including landscaping, maintenance and janitorial duties.

We are in the early development stages of what a “Phase 3” could look like to complete the development of the Mall site.

Forestry Boot Camp – Training for Basic Forestry Skills

We are hoping to host another Forestry Boot Camp in the near future! Each session would provide training for up to 15 individuals in basic forestry skills.

We are seeking interested Partners to help mentor new employees in entry level forestry positions. We want to help lead the way to fill the demand in B.C. for qualified workers in the forest sector. Come and Partner with us.
