For more than 20 years now, YAB Management has been providing customized business development and project management services, mainly but not exclusively, in Nunavut, Nunavik and Cree territories. Over time, we have developed an in-depth understanding of the Inuit and Cree local culture including the social, economic, logistic, legal, financing and political environment in those different communities.
YAB Management Corporation is also officially registered with the Government of Nunavut, with an official address in the hamlet of Rankin Inlet where it has a formal partnership with Sakku Investment Corporation, and is; thus, able to conduct fully approved business in the Nunavut region and Kivalliq Region. YAB Management is also a member of the Baffin Regional Chamber of Commerce and has a very important presence in Iqaluit and on the Baffin territory. YAB Management also has a partnership with Whapmagoostui Eeyou Economic Development Corporation the economic development corporation of WFN and major involvement within the development of Nimschu Iskudow Inc. and Kuujjuarapik Whapmagoostui Renewable Energy Corporation in the Hudson Bay Region.

Finally, YAB Management is developing several renewable energy studies and projects in the mining sector of Quebec and Nunavut.
We believe that the key factors of success in our enterprises are the good relationships we have developed with our Cree Eeyou, Inuit and non-Inuit clients of James and Hudson Bay, Nunavik and Nunavut; our understanding of local culture and our goal to go beyond the basics of consulting by listening and proposing solutions to our clients and providing custom made support for the implementation of their projects.
