Economic Development Background

The purpose of our economic development activities is to increase our own-source revenue so that we can create more jobs, grow the economy, and have more financial flexibility than what government funding provides. Khowutzun Development Corporation (KDC) is the primary economic development arm of Cowichan Tribes, and was created to develop a strong independent economy for Cowichan Tribes. It provides viable employment and training opportunities for Cowichan members and supports Cowichan entrepreneurs in the creation of wealth within the Cowichan community.
