About Us

Kitsaki Management Limited Partnership is owned by the Lac La Ronge Indian Band. The Chief and Council through the board of directors work to serve nearly 10,000 band members who reside in beautiful northern Saskatchewan. The area is resource-rich, with huge forests, thousands of lakes, deposits of gold, and uranium. The band is comprised of six communities; Grandmother's Bay, Hall Lake, Little Red, Sucker River, Stanley Mission and La Ronge.

We acquire and grow businesses to improve the economic future for our band members, Aboriginal people and all stakeholders. We pursue opportunities that meet our criteria for profitability, minimal risk, Aboriginal employment and training. It takes years to positively benefit thousands of band members but to date our investments have been successful.

We create and manage a portfolio of active business investments rather than the individual companies. We then work to maximize profits, employment, and training opportunities. We want to provide employment opportunities for membership so they can help strengthen our First Nation, our province, and our country. Profitable economic development leads to job creation and training. All Canadians will benefit from improving the economic circumstances of Aboriginal people, and we are privileged to do our part to meet this goal.
