Business Structure

The business structure of Canadian Shield Insurance and Financial Services is a limited partnership. The LP was established in November 1997 by English River First Nation's economic development arm, Des Nedhe Development Inc. DNDI is the General Partner which provides English River First Nation with controlling interest in the LP.

DW Anderson Management Corp has been retained as the General Manager of the partnership since its inception. In addition to growing the business for the collective benefit of our unitholders, the GM's function within the LP is to hire and train staff as required, maintain all licensing and registration requirements, provide all administrative functions involved in the daily operation of the company as well as service the daily needs of CSIS' client base.

Canadian Shield continues to welcome the opportunity of sharing its success and growth with other First Nation organizations. To this end, Limited Partnership units are available to clients as a means of participating in the growth and profitability of our company. In this manner, clients have a vested interest in its growth and profitability and are provided the unique ability of obtaining insurance and other financial services products from their own company. Please contact English River First Nation or the General Manager for further details.
