2012

  • Voluntary fire evacuation experience in Fox Lake and Gillam;
  • Continued series of meetings with Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre with the objective of taking over the administration and programming of Fox Lake School;
  • Received mandate from members working at Manitoba Hydro to address institutional racism in the workplace:
    • Recruitment of Community Liaison Officer at Gillam Services; and
    • Supported Hydro’s contract for Facilitated Solutions to work with Gillam Services.

2013

  • Reviewed 2009 VLT business plan and worked with KTC to complete it;
  • Realized larger opportunity for FLCN by developing a Commercial business plan on Kettle Crescent reserve for a Hotel and 2 level conference centre housing the VLT’s which was turned down by the membership by settling for a one level VLT centre;
  • Negotiated key terms agreement between FLCN and Manitoba Hydro regarding Conawapa;
  • Advocated for members concerns of safety, health and environment risks regarding Omni-trax’s announcement to transport crude oil to Churchill by passing through Fox Lake’s reserves of Kettle Crescent and Bird;
  • Initiate meeting with York Factory, War Lake, and Tataskwayak, with Minister Ashton regarding PR 280;
  • Upon numerous concerns for land and housing, a review of Treaty Land Entitlement file lead to meetings with the federal department of AANDC and TLE Centre.

2014

Chief and Council had numerous meetings with Manitoba Hydro to enforce their corporate responsibility to the social welfare of Fox Lake Cree Nation and our membership. Our perseverance has now paid off.

On August 21, 2014, Chief and Council were able to secure a commitment from Hydro to jointly develop a work plan for our future Construction Company to be awarded all the work for housing-related work in Gillam, such as roof repairs, and home renovations. Furthermore, within this work package there will be training opportunities for those who wish to learn construction-related trades.

Furthermore, Chief and Council asserted Fox Lake’s rightful position in regards to Manitoba Hydro’s plans for Gillam Redevelopment Expansion Plan (GREP). Upon successful negotiation, Hydro approved FLCN’s funding proposal for Ralph Beardy’s firm (Oodanooketoh Inc) to develop Fox Lake’s community plan under GREP and Land Use Plan.

Reviewed housing and other Physical Infrastructure (H&OPI) file for capital projects of a new Band Office, Nursing Station, Personal Care Home and Nursing Residence. Met with Manitoba Hydro, Manitoba Health, and First Nations Inuit & Health for capital funding – FNIH has not committed outstanding capital fund.
