The Kluane Dana Shaw Corporation (KDSC) was created with the mandate to be the for- profit, wealth generating business arm for the Kluane First Nation (KFN). In September 2013, KDSC was transferred and authorized to manage a starting cash equity position of $4.5 million (CAD). This initial money came from the KFN Self-Government Settlement Agreement (Treaty) under Chapter 22 – Economic Measures, Strategic Economic Development Investment Fund (SEDIF).
KDSC operates as an investment holdings company that generates wealth mostly in the form of business investments, and joint venture and limited partnerships. All investments must align with our financial strategies and core values, and produce gains with a minimum financial benchmark of 8%.
