Bimaadzwin – which means “life” or “good path” in Anishinaabe – was incorporated in July 2018 by former Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day. The driving purpose of Bimaadzwin is to Advance Our Nations.
Our Peoples need to create happy, healthy communities through economic development that focuses on First Nation jurisdiction. Our health comes from the wealth of our lands. We are the land.
SEVEN CORE VALUES
Highest Order of Inherent Right
Bimaadzwin strives to uphold the human right to life. Our efforts are, and will always be to elevate the protection, promotion, and the celebration of humanity. We are all equal.
Bimaadzwin appreciates, respects, and will always embrace cultural diversity in the workplace, in our partnerships, and as a targeted strategy in the recognition of the Nation-to-Nation relationship.
Being aware of the impacts of the resources we use as individuals and as an organization on our environment; knowing that the impacts that our work have on the overall health of our planet so we can ensure that our damage that we caused is minimized.
We will work together to achieve one goal. We will share our knowledge from all of our professional focuses. With that shared knowledge we will assist one another.
All families have different personalities, abilities, life experiences, values, beliefs and backgrounds. Bimaadzwin understands the needs of the family over the business. There are no set boundaries between family and business.
Professional Agility and Innovativeness
Bimaadzwin will lead in innovative solutions using a talented, passionate, focused, and committed team of experts. Interaction is key to accomplishing the goals set by our partners.
Accountability and Transparency
We value the commitments we make as an organization and as individuals. We hold ourselves accountable to always do our best to deliver to expectations. We will be transparent about the progress we are making and seek assistance where required.
With a combined professional foundation of experience, formal credentials, achievement and diverse legal, political, technical, financial and social innovation dispositions – the team at Bimaadzwin are gearing up to become one of the country’s foremost leading private sector organizations.
The combination of Administrative, Corporate and Associate affiliations to the Bimaadzwin team – this roster of professionals will provide direct support and guidance to a vision and action effort that will show immediate voice and results to Nationhood on many many levels.
