Tahltan Nation Development Corporation joins BCBC

DEASE LAKE, B.C. — Tahltan Nation Development Corporation (TNDC) has become the first wholly owned Indigenous corporation to join the Business Council of British Columbia (BCBC).

“TNDC is pleased to now be a full member of the Business Council of BC, joining our peers in the province’s business community to strengthen the investment climate and support sustainable prosperity for the Tahltan Nation and all people living in British Columbia,” said chief executive of Tahltan Corporation Paul Gruner in a news release.

Tahltan was rated the biggest First Nations business in B.C. in 2021 and the third biggest in 2022. It won the Indigenous business of the year award in 2022 at the Annual Arctic Indigenous Investment Conference.

The BCBC and BC Assembly of First Nations entered a memorandum of understanding in 2016 to advance reconciliation, the release reads. Chief Rick McLean of the Tahltan Nation was one of 14 First Nation’s chiefs who helped lead the initiative.

TNDC was founded in 1985 as a residential construction company. Since then, it has expanded into heavy construction, earthworks, camp services, air support, aviation, forestry, transportation, and fibre-optic communications services, the release states.
