At KDC the focus is job creation, training and business development for the community. We have achieved this in many ways as outlined below:
1. Employment Training:
By working in partnership with community services such as the Friendship center, Cowichan Tribes employment and education along with other groups such as Global Vocational, CSETS, we are able to allow job shadowing, work experience and hands on training to many of our community members.
2. Job Creation: Our main goal in all
ventures is to create work for our Cowichan people. We currently have 300
employees within the KDC group of companies. Of these people, approximately 2/3
are Cowichan Band members.
3. Business Development: In all areas of KDC the idea of job creation and training is exciting, but not as exciting and being able to produce meaningful jobs/careers or entrepreneurial business starts. Past successful works which we can put on our track record is the gas pipe line division, the construction division which has been producing work for the past 13 years, KMJ Kitchen & Bath Centre which has been operating successfully for the last 2 years.
