Tribal Councils Investment Group is pleased to announce the acquisition of Grand Medicine Health Services Ltd., a leader in providing pharmacy and healthcare services and supplies to communities.
This acquisition will allow The Spirit Group to reallocate resources and give back to these communities in order to improve the health and well-being of Indigenous peoples. This is an opportunity for The Spirit Group to expand on its healthcare initiatives and gain economic independence, as well as more control over health outcomes in remote communities.
Each company in the Spirit Group plays an important strategic role in advancing Indigenous participation in the mammoth pharmaceutical and health industry. SpiritRx Solutions understands the importance of value. We are providing savings, while adding value through progressive, innovative pharmacy solution to all Canadians.
The Spirit Group is proud to announce the acquisition of ARA Pharmaceuticals Inc.; ARA Pharmaceuticals Inc. is the Canadian manufacturer of the Spirit Meter and Spirit products.
This acquisition makes the Spirit Group stronger by making us, not only the first Indigenous branded meter but also the first Indigenous Canadian manufacturer of a pharmaceutical product. We now have complete control of our products, which will allow us to provide more support to our communities.
With our partners Express Scripts Canada (ESC), we (First Canadian Health Management Corporation [FC Health]) were successful in securing the Health Canada contract for Indigenous Health Information and Claims Services across Canada.
The Health Canada contract was awarded through a competitive RFP process. FC Health was able to provide ESC with an Aboriginal Procurement Commitment (APC) submission that was comprehensive, responsive and innovative.
FC Health has been a part of servicing this contract for Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) for the last 20 years.
This year the Spirit Group of Companies became members of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business(CCAB). The timing has never been better to look outside the box at new ways to support Aboriginal business. Through the CCAB Procurement Champion program, organizations are looking at opportunities outside typical ‘set-asides’ for Aboriginal business.
