The first priority for the Board was to get Corporation and entities in order with completion of Financial Statements, Annual Returns, legal, Tax Returns, GST Returns, Banking, and Accounting Services. Then Chief and Council worked to ensure plans are in sync with the Community development plans.
Working together as a team with leadership and other departments in Mistawasis, there is a push to move forward with future opportunities such as: land designations, head lease process, First Nation Tax Commission, and financial management. This will lead to opportunities for Misty Ventures to develop Businesses on the selected lands the community wanted to use for development that include: Dalmeny, Lucier, West of Main Reserve, and Galloway.
This is an exciting time for Mistawasis First Nation. We now have proven success of having the structure and accountability that the business environment is looking for. We look forward to making more announcements in the future about new activities that have positive outcomes.
We would like to ensure to the Mistawasis Band members that the existing Misty Ventures Board is committed to creating the best opportunities for the nation that will create not only wealth but employment opportunities also. Once Misty Ventures gets to the capacity of operating some businesses or companies we are planning to add more board members.
