Kingfisher Lake

Kingfisher Lake First Nation is one of the original eight communities which started the company in 1986. Elder Albert Mamakwa had a vision to help the young people and he wanted to see the First Nation communities get involved in business ventures.

Today, Kingfisher Lake is a tremendous supporter of Wasaya and a proud owner.
