Goals

To make a positive difference in the health, employment and economy of remote Indigenous communities, by providing quality, sustainable retail stores.

A sustainable future for remote communities

The more involvement the community has in their store, the more likely it is going to be able to make a positive impact. We proactively build strong relationships and engaging with the store owners to take accountability for:

  • Increasing Indigenous employment and supporting certified training
  • Creating healthy store environments
  • Driving changes that lead to positive health outcomes
  • Quarterly updates on financials, health and employment outcomes
  • Disbursement of any profit the store generates
  • Good governance

This strategy creates sustainability and engaged communities who are passionate about delivering the best outcomes for their people.
