The Tlingit-Tagish First Nation community at Carcross in Yukon only had a gas station with a fast food counter. There was no other economic asset in the village and it was impossible for the community to have sustainable revenue from employment and other economic activities. Then with the support of the Synergie Industries who organized the senior advisory board sessions, a few projects were identified including a retail village in the centre of Carcross. Synergie Industries assisted with the design of the retail village through traditional Tlingit « long houses », paintings and totems, as well as the implementation of this project. This project turned out to be a great commercial success with all the space rented out and over 700,000 visitors received every year.
