Citation for BC Aboriginal Business Awards Achiever

Community-Owned Business of the Year - one entity

Quilakwa Investments


In 1972 Splats’in Indian Band built a small store at the bottom of Canyon Rd and Highway 97A. From these humble beginnings, Quilakwa Investments has developed into a full service convenience store and a high-end iconic building that houses a Tim Hortons, a small art gallery and professional office space. It is now one of the biggest employers and economic drivers for Splats’in– a truly inspirational role model.
