About ACD

Existing Business Operations

Existing business operations of ACD consist of a gas and grocery store, a gas and confectionary store, a restaurant and a tire shop.  ACD also provides management and accounting services to the Firs Nation under contract for several community service initiatives.  Current operations of ACD provide 25 full time and 10 seasonal positions.

Corporate Structure

ACD was established under a limited partnership structure with Ahtahkakoop First Nation being the “limited partner” and Ahtahkakoop Cree Developments ltd being the “general partner”.   Under the partnership, ACD, through its board of directors controls the business operations of ACD, conducts all economic development and business activity, and acts as the management organization for the investment holding of the First Nation.

As an added means of strengthening its corporate structure and to ensure political stability, Ahtahkakoop Cree Nation interposed a Trust between the First Nation as represented by the Chief and Council and the corporation of ACD.

The Trust provides assurances that ACD’s structures, authorities, and mandates will not change in cases where leadership changes occur within the First Nation. The Trust ensures the assets of the Corporation are safeguarded and protected at all times.
