Who We Are

Fiscal Realities Economists

Recognizing the economic, 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 opportunities for all communities, regions, and nations. Working across Canada and internationally, our team of highly qualified Economists and data scientists have established a reputation for humility, reliability, and ingenuity. 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 national organizations to help foster sustainable business and investment climates that 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 collaborations/partnerships with Indigenous communities. Additionally, we collaborate with public sector organizations, provincial and federal governments, and universities on public policy research, academic research, statistical studies, curriculum development and course/workshop delivery.  

Fiscal Realities has developed an innovative, solutions-based approach to complex questions in applied economics. Our work in this area has supported First Nations in building robust local economies, enhancing their independent jurisdiction, and in turn creating a better future for communities.
