Fort McKay First Nation Majority Owned Companies

The Nation’s business interests are conducted through a wholly owned Holding Company. The investment approach is to select industry leaders as partners and invest equally with them in the creation of a new company that we believe will be able to provide the services/products which are needed by clients. In a portfolio company, FMFN typically holds majority ownership (51%) and assigns responsibility for day-to-day operations to our skilled partner, who holds minority ownership (49%).
