Seeking, securing, & promoting value-aligned economic development opportunities on the homelands of the sqilx’w people of nk̓maplqs (North end of the Okanagan Lake), for a safer, healthier, & more sustainable community.
Open for business and welcoming all opportunities
The Okanagan Indian Band Group of Companies (OKIBGC) is built to create partnerships that serve the economic interests of the Syilx (Okanagan) people.
sqilx’w Peoples have occupied, cared for, and lived in reciprocity with the lands, waters and resources of our homelands since the time of our Creation Story, through time-perfected social, political and economic systems. We seek to revitalize and honour these systems through contemporary innovation.
The Okanagan Indian Band (OKIB) believes that a healthy and prosperous future requires the OKIB to pursue opportunities both on OKIB lands and more broadly on our sqilx’w homelands to support a safer, stronger, healthier, financially abundant community for ‘the People to Be,’ our generations to come.
