The Metis Settlements Impact Fund (MSIF) is designed to bridge the access to capital gap for indigenous communities.  The fund provides a path for material participation in Economic Reconciliation for private and institutional investors. 

There are four levels of impact for the MSIF:

Metis Settlements – The fund directly impacts economic reconciliation and the prosperity and wellbeing of Metis people by creating dividends for our Metis Settlements Limited Partners through fund investments.​

UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – We focus on investing in companies that align with SDGs including Energy Transition and Climate, Agriculture and Food Security, Health and Mental Health and Indigenous owned companies.  These are areas that adversely impact indigenous communities and where real impact can be made growth and change in Indigenous communities. We will invest in companies that make material and substantial change and are invested in true reconciliation. We also wanted to ensure that we could invest in indigenous owned companies, where we can make an impact form the growth of indigenous entrepreneurs.

Growth Companies – We will strategically invest in growth opportunities. When assessing companies, we will fund companies in their next stage of growth. We are long term, patient investors who use a seven generations approach in creating long term intergenerational wealth and prosperity. 

ESGI – MSDC is building a set of environmental, social, governance and indigenous metrics that will be leading in how we measure the impact of portfolio companies on ESG measures but will also provide a set of metrics that let us materially measure the impact on indigenous people and communities.
