Blood Tribe

Kainai Marketplace in Standoff, Alberta

VisionQuest Advisors is proud to have worked with the Blood Tribe in Standoff, Alberta, to create Kainai Marketplace. Opened in September 2016, Kainai Marketplace addressed the Economic Development Committee’s goal of providing affordable, fresh and healthy food products.

VisionQuest Advisors was there from the very beginning – completing the feasibility study, developing the business, financial and marketing plans.

We also:

  • Worked with Council to establish a corporate and business structure, along with governance policies and procedures.
  • Assisted with Construction Project Management to ensure that the project was completed on time and on budget.
  • Managed the recruiting and interview process of key staff and worked with the community to execute both the soft and grand openings.
