A $66,000 provincial investment will help First Nations and Aboriginal associations across the North share knowledge and expertise to provide better local services to their communities.
The Northern Ontario Municipal Association announced an investment of more than $2.7 million for projects throughout northwestern Ontario.
The province’s $66,000 will help the Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corp. in Thunder Bay develop a videoconferencing network for Northern Tribal Council offices throughout Northern Ontario.
The system will be used to enhance training delivery for community services such as solid waste disposal, water plant operation, mould remediation and contract management of capital projects.
The total cost of the project is $4,366,410.
