FNIS has been actively planning for growth and seeking out partnerships to enhance the company’s
capacity and increase its client base.

lot of sense for FNIS and are proud to expand our services in order to help more clients protect their
health and finances.”
FNIS was founded in 1987 when the Chief and Council of Lac La Ronge Indian Band (LLRIB) decided to
address the need for a unique benefits option for First Nations people. More than three decades later,
FNIS has expanded significantly from its focus on addressing Health Canada insurance-related service
gaps for First Nations with its own FNIS Group Insurance Plan, to a full range of services for Indigenous
and non-Indigenous clients with group insurance and pension plans, life and disability insurance,
pension and insurance plan conversions, personal health insurance, and more.
“After more than three decades, FNIS has earned a reputation for quality service that people can
depend on,” says Tammy Cook-Searson, Chief of LLRIB and President of Kitsaki Management. “It’s been
really great to see how FNIS has grown, and expanding the client base is such a natural next step. We’re
all looking forward to where the FNIS leadership team takes the company in the years ahead.”
