Nechako-Kitimaat Development Fund

Nechako-Kitamaat Development Fund Society


Nechako-Kitamaat Development Fund (NKDF) Society grants are designed to support sustainable economic activity in northern communities affected by the Kitimat-Kemano project and by the creation of the Nechako Reservoir. NKDF spends the income from its long-term investments on projects that meet each community’s economic development and community building goals and contribute to overall community health, development, and stability.


The investment area for NKDF is normally limited to those areas with evidence of impacts from Alcan’s (Rio Tinto) Nechako Reservoir and Kemano power project. We encourage applications from local governments, First Nations and legally incorporated non-profit organizations serving the following communities and nearby rural areas:

  • Kitamaat Village
  • Southside
  • Nee Tahi Buhn Band
  • Cheslatta Carrier Nation
  • Skin Tyee Band
  • Village of Burns Lake
  • Burns Lake Band
  • Lake Babine Nation (Woyenne)
  • Stellat'en First Nation
  • Village of Fraser Lake
  • Nadleh Whut’en Band
  • Fort Fraser
