Four First Nations, ON renew partnerships for economic and resource development

The Government of Ontario has signed Letters of Confirmation to renew its partnerships with four First Nations in Northern Ontario: Animbiigoo Zaagi’igan Anishinaabek, Aroland First Nation, Ginoogaming First Nation, and Long Lake #58 First Nation. The partnerships include $1.9M in funding through ON’s Skills Development Fund to provide training and career supports related to mineral development jobs in the region. “Minodahmun’s Indigenous Workforce Development Program is crucial for empowering our people with the skills and opportunities to build meaningful careers, strengthen our communities and ensure our members are participating in projects on our lands,” said Ginoogaming First Nation Chief Sheri Taylor.
