The Glooscap First Nation Economic Development Corporation (GFNEDC) was created to improve the revenue centres that exist in the Glooscap First Nation community by creating new partnerships and exploring future earning opportunities while promoting and protecting the Glooscap community's heritage and values.

Our focus is to increase revenue while respecting and supporting the Glooscap First Nation community, maintaining social well being by increasing employment and financial opportunities with the participation of community members and to utilize existing relationships, government resources and private partnerships to build a stronger more sustainable community.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Glooscap First Nation Economic Development program is to enhance the quality of life for the community through development of band-owned business opportunities and providing assistance to individuals interested in creating opportunities for themselves through business activities.
