Opaskwayak Chief Christian Sinclair recently spoke to 102.9 CJAR about the work that he has done with the Look North Strategy. Sinclair says they have engaged with an Indigenous person from New Zealand to bring an indigenous perspective into the planning process.
This has helped engage the first nation’s people of The Pas, Flin Flon, Churchill and Thompson in the process of the strategy. The Purpose of the Look North Strategy is to improve economic development, housing, employment and infrastructure in Northern Manitoba.
The next step is too facture all of these elements into a plan that will help to reinvigorate Northern economies.
The Plan is expected to be finalized at the end of June.
