Regional Distribution Centre

Six First Nation- Municipal pairs across Canada  Two-year pilot project

Northwestern Ontario First Nation-Municipal Partners  Lac Seul First Nation,  Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI)  And, Sioux Lookout

Joint initiative with Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and the Council for the Advancement of Native Development Officers (Cando)

Partners are to work collaboratively on a regional development project


CEDI partners are exploring the feasibility of a Regional Distribution Centre (RDC) that would serve as a central distribution point for fresh foods and consumer goods

The objective is to sources direct from manufacturers or importers to allow for:  competitive pricing,  better ‘use by’ dates,  shorter delivery times, and  reduced stock holding.

The RDC would provide the space and equipment for food and consumer goods to be stored, lightly processed, packed, and palletized as well wholesale and retail vending space, and offer storage space for communities with limited capacity

The RDC would operate as a non-profit social enterprise

Lac Seul and Sioux Lookout are located 430 and 400 road km respectively northwest of Thunder Bay

KI (Big Trout Lake) is a remote FN community located 430 air km north of Sioux Lookout (limited access in winter by road)

Why Sioux Lookout RDCs are strategically placed close to point of use, taking advantage of local transport hubs to serve several communities from one point

Sioux Lookout services 30,000 people from 29 remote First Nation communities Sioux Lookout Lac Seul

Thunder Bay

Sioux Lookout Airport - CYXL

30,000 movements annually

120,000 passengers annually

In many ways, developing a co-operative business is a lot like developing a traditional business. Where things differ is that a co-op is shaped through collective effort and group decision-making as well as a set of co-operative principles that help to guide the business. This makes the business planning more complex, but it also means the resulting corporation is stronger and more likely to succeed.

Why start a co-op?. 
