Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation are in the process of developing a Land Use Plan and Capital Infrastructure Plan for the community. Both plans will establish a vision for the future of our community and a path to get there. We thank those community members who have participated in the process so far, either in the community meeting, knowledge holder interviews, or survey.
Our next engagement event promises to be fun and interactive!
Mapping Workshop: You’re Invited
The mapping workshop will provide members with an interactive opportunity to provide input on past, present and future land uses. The workshop will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams, in small groups of 4-8 participants per session. Our consultants, SVS, will share a live map of Neyaashiinigmiing over the screen and, through a series of questions, together we will mark it up with knowledge, stories, and visions for the future. All community members are invited to participate and share your knowledge about the land.
Sign up for one of three workshop timeslots:
- Tuesday, March 16th, 2-4 pm
- Wednesday, March 17th, 7-9 pm
- Thursday, March 18th, 7-9 pm
There are limited spots so sign up now!
To register, or if you have any questions, contact Larissa Johnston, Lands Manager/Membership Supervisor, by phone 519-534-1689 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
About the Land Use Plan
The Land Use Plan will guide future planning on the surveyed reserve lands (#27 Neyaashiinigmiing), Cape Croker Hunting Grounds, and the 69-acre vacant parcel undergoing the Additions to Reserve process (Lots 61-63 Con 3E & Lots 61-62 Con 4 East, Neyaashiinigmiing). It will consider the environment, species at risk, areas used for cultural purposes that allow Neyaashiinigmiing to plan for future development while protecting what is important.
The Land Use Plan scheduled to be completed between December 2020 and July 2021.
About the Capital Infrastructure Plan
The Capital Infrastructure Plan will identify ways to address infrastructure challenges, such as housing, water treatment and distribution, wastewater treatment and disposal, solid waste management, roads and drainage, and communications. This Plan will support prioritizing Neyaashiinigmiing’s infrastructure needs by identifying key objectives from community input and providing recommendations based on engineering principles.
The Capital Infrastructure Plan is scheduled to be completed between April 2021 and November 2021.
