Apeetogosan (Métis) Development Inc. (AMDI) is committed to providing profitable and sustainable financial services and support to clients who seek the means to attain economic self-sufficiency. The organization was created in 1984 under a Federal Government Contribution Agreement with Native Economic Development Program, an initiative promoted by industry, science and technology. The total committed funds for the creation of AMDI was $8.8 million.
In 1988, AMDI began operations by providing commercial financial services and business management advisory services to Métis entrepreneurs throughout Alberta. Under the original Federal Government Contribution Agreement, $800,000 was expensed on the initial start-up costs while the capital pool of $8 million was disbursed in stages.
AMDI has lent out over $60 million since 1988 and helped in the creation of over 1,000 Métis-owned businesses throughout Alberta while maintaining a capital base of $8 million. The purpose of AMDI is to help our Métis entrepreneurs get started in business, and through our counseling and the determination of our clients they will eventually no longer require our services.
