Mr. Dan Boudreau took over the reigns of managing the NKDF Society on July 21st, 2004 after Lisa Dunn resigned her position due to relocation to Victoria.
Dan, a seasoned business consultant, with over twenty years experience working with business groups and organizations from all over Northern British Columbia, is well known to many in the Nechako Reservoir area. Dan’s main area of expertise is business planning and forestry planning initiatives. He brings with him, to the NKDFS, a wealth of funding acquisition knowledge garnered through his years working with Community Futures Development Corporation and the SICEAI (Softwood Industry Community Economic Development Initiatives) Programs.
Dan Boudreau is excited to be taking a lead role in representing the NKDFS in the communities along Highway 16. “While the new manager’s office will be relocated to Prince George from Terrace, Dan will soon be making his rounds to all participating communities” says Dave Merz, Chair of the Society. Mr. Merz also extends reassurances to clients and potential applicants that the transition between managers has been smooth and the NKDFS is operating business as usual. The next meeting is scheduled to take place in Grassy Plains on September 21st, 2004.
The Nechako-Kitamaat Development Fund Society was jointly established in 1997 with a combined contribution of $15 million by the government of British Columbia and Alcan Inc. The Fund’s investment area includes lands impacted by the original Kemano project and focuses on those communities in the Nechako and Haisla regions of the north.
The Society encourages applications from local governments and legally incorporated non-profit organizations. NKDF invests in projects that create sustainable employment, diversify the economy, and improve the basic infrastructure needed for community stability, quality of life and growth.
The Government of B.C. and Alcan Inc. each contributed $7.5 million to establish the Northern Development Fund in 1999. The investment income generated from this fund supports the NKDF grants program. Each partner has one representative serving on the board of directors. The NKDF is part of the portfolio of the Minister of Jobs, Trade and Technology.
