Our approach to business is to maximize current and upcoming opportunities in our region, related to the resource development sector, regional service/product gaps, and other emerging business sectors:

We aim to deliver Property Development and Management solutions that address housing, commercial and institutional building gaps within our region. Solutions that include partnerships with existing organizations and businesses are ideal and support our approach of working together for the benefit of the users and owners at every stage of the development process.
Building an asset base and mitigating economic leakage are primary drivers of our overall business model, with MDC Properties providing this business service.
The purchase of our first office building in 2018 is anchored by tenant Mushkegowuk Council and houses their Timmins sub-office employees. As practiced in the past, First Nation member communities are able to access use of the boardroom and other support services as needed.
