Economic Development Background

As there are few sources of employment near the Lytton First Nation reserves, the Lytton First Nation Economic Development Department works to create employment opportunities for LFN membership.

Summary of Economic Development Agreements, Community Businesses and Joint Ventures

LFN owns Kumsheen Enterprises, a few retail stores and a gas bar. The community also owns a small portable mill, which employs up to six people during peak seasons and log home building equipment, which is now waiting for external funding to restart production. LFN has engaged in an Economic Development Agreement with the Provincial Government.
