Songhees Economic Development

When Christina Clarke, the head of Economic Development at Songhees Nation, asked us to develop a website to highlight Songhees Nation’s  Strategic Priorities for Economic Development, we jumped at the chance. Through another partnership with Songhees Nation and the Songhees Innovation Centre, we were already aware of some of the amazing developmental accomplishments Songhees Nation has already accomplished. We are excited to see how the site grows and continues to support the Songhees community.

The purpose of the Songhees Development Corporation is to operate profitable business ventures, generate surplus income and create a supportive environment for entrepreneurs.  Using best practices for business governance, Songhees Development Corporation seeks alignment with Songhees Nation’s values and priorities. In a business context, these values are applied through the choosing of who they work with, how they work with one another and how they resolve challenges. Their economic objectives include generating a surplus to support community priorities while investing in the future, fostering a prosperous environment for entrepreneurs and community-based business ventures, and supporting Nation-owned and operated business ventures and partnerships. By being respectful, honest and courageous they resolve concerns directly, build trust, and establish long-term relationships.
