Established in 2013, Glooscap Ventures is focused on helping our Glooscap family thrive.
As a company that is 100% owned by the Glooscap First Nation community, our role is to manage community businesses on behalf of Chief and Council, with the goal of facilitating growth and increased community capacity. The profit from those businesses is reinvested in ways that enable the community and its members to become more spirited and full of life with each passing year. Every day, we put our mandate first:
"Do something today that makes our community more prosperous than it was yesterday"
Our Core Values:
Do No Harm (to self, to others, the earth)
Carry the Good Forward (our heritage, skills and ideas)
Leave No Member Behind (young, old, near, or far)
Honour Nature's Gifts (land, animals, sea)
Be Considerate Partners (communicate, understand, share, compassion)
Our vision and contribution extends far beyond our own community. Through our efforts at home, we are working to create a model for First Nations' economic development that honours heritage, resurrects ancient wisdom and provides case studies that other communities can learn from and follow.
