About Us

Denendeh Development Corporation was established in 1982 as a not-for-profit Corporation and over the years it has built up a diverse portfolio of investments.  In order to provide greater opportunities for growth in 2000 the Chiefs of Denendeh approved a new investment structure that resulted in the creation of Denendeh Investments Limited Partnership (DILP) and its general partner Denendeh Investments Incorporated (DII). 

  • DDC owns 50% of the NWT Dene Metis Development Fund, along with the NWT Metis Development Corporation.
  • DDC owns preferred and ordinary partnership units in DILP.
  • DDC organized and presented the Annual NWT Aboriginal Business Conferences between 2006 and 2009.
  • DDC was instrumental in the creation of the Northern Aboriginal Business Association (NABA), founded in October 2007.
  • DDC works to create long-term economic self-sufficiency for the Dene – investing today for a stronger Dene future.
