“Pinehouse Business North Development Corporation” was originally established as a village-owned development corporation under the Saskatchewan Northern Municipalities Act in the early 1990s. It was hoped PBN could introduce the community to some of the economic spin-off benefits associated with its proximity to the Key Lake uranium mine. But those expectations never really materialized. PBN struggled, foundered and was struck off the Saskatchewan corporations register in 1996. In 1998, it was reconstituted as “Pinehouse Business North Development Inc.” Then most recently in 2012, following a share-split, “Pinehouse Business North Limited Partnership” was established, taking over operations from PBN Development Inc.
