We Support Economic Opportunities
Nch’ḵay̓ promotes economic growth by supporting business opportunities that align with the values and interests of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw and its members. As an economic pillar of the Squamish Nation, Nch’ḵay̓’s influence spans many sectors such as real estate, energy, natural resources, and retail —generating revenue while creating sustainable growth that benefits the community.
The aim is to place the Squamish Nation in a strong economic position. This commitment ensures that the Nation’s heritage is honoured, its present needs are met, and future generations have a foundation to build upon independently.
The Role of the Nch’ú7mut Endorsed Business Registry (NEBR)
Central to Nch’ḵay̓, the NEBR is a database of Businesses that Nch’ú7mut Contracting has approved to receive support in pursuit of procurement business opportunities primarily in the construction industry. The Registry is a platform for businesses that are aligned with the Squamish Nation’s values and objectives.
Established to ensure that collaborations provide a return of value to the Nation, the NEBR requires registered businesses to commit to shared revenue, sub-contracting and employment opportunities, training initiatives, and living wage benchmarks for Nation members in exchange for support in winning procurement opportunities. The goal is to pursue procurement outcomes that contribute as broadly as possible to the Nation’s economic progress.
Each of Nch’ḵay̓’s ventures is rooted in the Nation’s vision, principles, and strategic direction. Emphasis is consistently put on the well-being of the Nation’s communities through the preservation of language and culture as well as through sustainable procurement practices.
