The Okanagan Indian Band’s (OKIB) mission is to ensure the future through social, cultural and economic development. Its economic development office works on the economic arm of this promise to create corporations and business partnerships that are majority-owned by the Okanagan Indian Band. To date, the Okanagan Indian Band’s economic development programs have helped to enrich the Okanagan’s construction, development and financial industries.
In 2005 the District and OKIB formalized their long term, cooperative working relationship by entering into a Protocol Agreement. The underlying and fundamental purposes of the agreement are: effective and adequate communications, cooperation aimed at mutual benefit and partnerships which create lasting benefits.
