Lil’wat Holdings Limited Partnership is the holding company for all of the operating companies of the Lil’wat Nation (DBA Lil’wat Business Group) and includes: Lil’wat Retail Operations LP, Lil’wat Forestry Ventures LP, Lil’wat Construction Enterprises LP, Lil’wat Capital Assets LP, and Lil’wat Management Services LP. Lil’wat Holdings has been instrumental in bringing broadband services to the Nation and in helping acquire forestry rights so that the Nation can control its valuable natural resources and dictate logging activities. In 2009 the Nation opened a full-service grocery store (Tsípun Supermarket at Xetólacw) in Mount Currie to provide fresh, consistent, food supplies and retail work opportunities and training. It also offers financial and advisory support to community members, and its gas station (Lil’wat Station) has become a meeting and gathering place. Future plans include the construction of a new gas station in Whistler, BC along with a mixed use commercial/residential development in Whistler, expansion of their commercial core in Mount Currie and further residential development in both Whistler and Pemberton.
