Next Generation Thinking

Forward-thinking Canadian businesses leaders know that Indigenous suppliers are a key part of any viable strategic sourcing strategy. But how do you find the right Indigenous businesses to partner with?

The Indigenous-owned companies in the Des Nedhe Group will help you push beyond CSR compliance to find the sustainable, value-adding partners you really need – world-class leaders that can compete with suppliers in any market, industry, or region.


Investing in relationships

At Des Nedhe Group, we approach business differently, forging trusting partnerships and investing in relationships that are measured in years and decades, not from contract to contract.

Building on our strong relationships with Indigenous communities throughout Canada, we take a national-to-nation approach to business development that generates a continuous pipeline of qualified suppliers, entrepreneurs, and partnerships – and the expanded access to skills, land, resources, and talent that comes with them.

Dream bigger

The demand for qualified Indigenous suppliers has never been greater, as corporations and procurement officers in industrial companies across Canada rush to find the experts they need to deliver better performance while also diversifying their supply chain.

The problem is that not all Indigenous suppliers have the skills or capacity needed to serve the needs of larger corporations – or the connections to get the opportunity off the ground in the first place.

That’s where we come in.
