Who We Are
Fiscal Realities Economists
Recognizing the fiscal, institutional and legislative gaps for Indigenous peoples around the world, Andre LeDressay and Greg Richard founded Fiscal Realities Economists in 1992.
Fiscal Realities is an economic, policy and financial research company that believes in improving economic opportunity for all communities, regions, and nations. Our team of highly qualified Economists have established a reputation of humility, reliability, and ingenuity and we are proud to have served over 100 Indigenous and non-Indigenous public and private clients throughout the last three decades.
Fiscal Realities works with Indigenous communities and organizations to create an attractive and sustainable business climate that can enable Indigenous communities and governments to exercise greater jurisdiction, enhance fiscal power, and improve administrative and entrepreneurial capacity. We also work with private firms on business strategy, reporting requirements (plans and annual reports), research, and collaboration/partnership with Indigenous communities. Additionally, we work with public sector organizations, governments and universities on public policy research, academic research, statistical studies, curriculum development and course/workshop delivery.
