Shawano Consulting Services Ltd. was formed in 2003 to assist and support First Nations in managing capi­tal projects in their communities. Although Shawano Consulting is a relatively new company it has put together a team of skilled professionals with extensive experience managing First Na­tion capital projects. We believe in implementing projects so that the requirements of both the First Nation and the funding agency are met.
Our company specializes in managing major capital projects for First Nation communities. Shawano has a strong track record of providing quality project management services to clients. Projects are consistently delivered on time, within budget, meeting all quality standards, and assisting First Nation communities with community economic benefits associated with the capital projects.  Shawano Consulting Services Ltd. manages projects as a team and prides itself on achieving a high degree of client satisfaction.
The success of this management strategy is a result of our basic business principles:
  • respect for our clients;
  • work in partnership with our clients towards a common goal;
  • identify opportunities for our clients to benefit from the project, then working with our clients to maximize benefits for their community;
