Economic Development Support

Roger Nopper, Band Manager

“Our Nation received support from Indigenous Community for Leadership and Development (ICLD) for Economic Development and Training Support. The training was of great benefit, and we would highly recommend ICLD to other communities based on the quality of service. We found ICLD to have excellent customer service as they had an in-depth understanding of Indigenous Communities needs, barriers, and requirements. Their highly qualified staff is knowledgeable and delivered content that was culturally adapted to our community needs.

“We would highly recommend and utilize ICLD services for future training requirements and would welcome and programs developed by this highly recommended organization.”

Jordan Hazelwood, BBC Employment and Training Department

“Candidates who received training to enhance their quality of life and gain essential and employment readiness skills included members of Tk”emlups te Secwepemc and Skeetchestn Indian Band, part of the the Stk’emlupsemc te Secwepemc Nation (SSN).

“The training received was of great benefit and we would highly recommend ICLD to other communities based upon the quality of service, their promptness and connecting our department to various funding sources. We found ICLD to have great customer service as they have an in-depth understanding of Indigenous Communities needs, barriers and requirements. Their ability to provide instructors who connected with the class and create and engaging and safe atmosphere for candidates was incredible. Their highly qualified staff were knowledgeable and delivered content that was culturally adapted for our community needs.”


High Performing Teams


“The instructors made the course fun, it exceeded my expectations. I recommend any organization to do this course and use the tools in both your professional and personal lives.” -Frederick D McKay

“Finding my personal inner strengths (Aware of Self) as well as finding my outward strengths or better said ‘what I am made of’ found this experience to be very exciting, uplifting and empowering, to know my contributions to team effort! There’s no ‘I’ in team; to steer our canoe in the right direction. We as servants to our community must realize to achieve greatness, we must be willing to serve each other: leaders, elders and the community, with unity.” -Collier Bright


Youth Career Training

Sophia Sampson

“I really enjoyed being a part of this Youth Career Training program that took us five exceptional days to complete. It showed us what career training is really like and let us experience it first hand. I felt that this program met my full expectations and guided me in knowing more information than I had before; the information was very well organized, and I now feel very well informed about career expectations and more.

“To be honest, I really appreciated the instructors’ enthusiasm and positive vibes, as well as their ability to go over things we may not have been taught before.”
