Creating a Future As Rich as Our Past.


On April 1, 2011, Huu-ay-aht First Nations (HFN) became self-governing. To separate business from politics, the nation established the HFN Development Limited Partnership (HFN Development LP), an arms-length limited partnership equipped with independent management, a Board of Directors, and a mandate to pursue economic development opportunities for Huu-ay-aht and its citizens.

Today the HFN Development LP oversees the strategic direction of all businesses owned by the Huu-ay-aht First Nations on the west coast of Vancouver Island, in British Columbia, Canada. We invite you to learn more about us by exploring this site.

Our Vision

Together, the Huu-ay-aht Economic Development Committee and HFN Development LP strive to achieve a flourishing Huu-ay-aht economy through initiatives that provide sustainable benefits for all.

Our Governance Structure

The Economic Development Committee conducts research and development and oversees strategic planning for future business opportunities. The Economic Development Committee also receives and considers input from advisors and the HDC Board of Directors. This Economic Development Committee is a standing committee and an advisory group in the Huu-ay-aht Government.

The HDC Board of Directors implements approved business opportunities. The Board also delivers consolidated reports on active business opportunities and provides an overview to the nation.

The Operating Boards are responsible for the day-to-day operation of Huu-ay-aht businesses. Operating boards work on active business opportunities and report to the HDC Board.
