Presentation & Free Fish Dinner


April 1, 2010

                            5:30pm at Community Center


Please come and join us for a delicious fish dinner, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, baked beans, scone, dessert and beverages included and then a short presentation about:  Where the project is at.





The governance committee (Councillors Peter Akiwenzie, Veronica Smith, Kathy Jones, Youth Representative Spring Dawn Cook Akiwenzie and I Coordinator Amy Nadjiwon-Tobey) also attended a governance development networking conference this past week with a great review and much learned.  The purpose of governance networking is to “learn from other communities, share what works, what doesn’t work, and our visions for the future” taken right from the (Adhoc Governance Networking Committee).


We heard from speakers from Anishnabe Aski Nation (NAN), Union of Ontario Indians (UOI) Indian and Northern Affairs Commission (INAC) and National Centre for First Nation Governance (NCFNG).  While we were there we were also able to meet with Ron Mavin the Regional Manager for First Nations Governance DIAND.

Some points committee has taken from this networking opportunity.

-The workshop by the National Centre for First Nation Governance was an excellent presentation they have a grand opening April 10 and have a good line up of services that they provide to FN including their strategic planning workshop.

– The networking was a great learning experience and made some good contacts. We heard many success stories and many mistakes made by other communities in regards to the election code.  There are many things to take from these contacts and paints in a clearer picture to what an election code can do and has done for communities.

Overall it was a learning opportunity and that is what the committee has taken away from this experience.
