It is also essential that we abide by certain ethical and moral responsibilities in the decisions we make to ensure accountability to membership, leadership and other stakeholders.
Building a Better Tomorrow
It is best described that Yellow Quill Holdings is in a state of continuous evolution towards a more specific focus on economic development – achieved through the creation of an Economic Advisory Board, membership to the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce, and fostering of the Wealth Creation Model.
Yellow Quill Economic Advisory Board
To make certain current and future economic development projects are both feasible and practical – Yellow Quill Holdings Board will aspire to create an Economic Advisory Board (EAB) composed of industry and business professionals. The intent of EAB is to provide constructive advice and feedback to Holdings Board and is not a decision making body but rather is established to ensure Holdings Board is supported by proven expert opinion.
Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce
In Yellow Quill Holdings pursuits to greater participation in the provincial economy and workforce, we felt it essential to create linkages to various business sectors within Saskatchewan. As a result, Yellow Quill Holdings became a member to the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce. Exploring and building networks within the business community is essential to maximizing our greatest economic potential as a First Nation community in Saskatchewan. As further economic development projects come to fruition – it is anticipated Holdings will have an opportunity to address Chamber members at an upcoming event.
Wealth Creation Model
The Wealth Creation Model (WCM) developed for Yellow Quill is unique in the sense that no other First Nation has developed or implemented such.
To create a sustainable economy for Yellow Quill, it is much more than the coordination of the factors of production in land, labour, and capital – it is separating politics from business while identifying specific responsibilities for each that are strategically aligned to an improved economic and social well-being for the Yellow Quill community. Our success in effectively identifying certain deficiencies within each of the variables in the Wealth Creation Model will ultimately determine our overall success in wealth creation.
