Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation’s (SNGRDC) Community Collaborators program engages SNGRDC business partners to support local initiatives, directly impacting the Six Nations community. These initiatives are an excellent opportunity to showcase SNGRDC partnerships to the Six Nations community in a meaningful and impactful manner. You can become involved in the program by participating in one of three tiers.

Community Awareness is an annual event on Six Nations where community businesses and organizations are invited to host events to showcase their products and services to community members. Each year, SNGRDC hosts a free community BBQ at Chiefswood Park along with a fundraising raffle, prize bingo, live music, and more. The support of our Community Collaborators allows us to offer this event free of charge to community members and donate the profits to local organizations. Our 2023 raffle raised over $1,300 for Community Living Six Nations “Ronatahskats”, a local non-profit organization that provides services to adults who have an intellectual disability living on the territory.

SNGRDC hosts our annual Fall Festival at Chiefswood Park to bring the community together and celebrate the harvest before gatherings shift indoors for the season.

In 2023, the Fall Festival raised over $4,700 for Ganohkwasra Family Assault Support Services, a local Six Nations non-profit organization that provides shelter, counselling, and other support for people seeking safety from violence. The support of our Community Collaborators allows us to offer this event free of charge to community members and local vendors.
