Loss of First Nations University of Canada will be felt by all – Kenora Daily Miner

Loss of First Nations University of Canada will be felt by all

Years ago when I first heard about the difficulties at the First Nations University of Canada in Saskatchewan, I was surprised. The school had functioned as the Saskatchewan Indian Federated College for years prior and I knew lots of people who held degrees from there. Some of the best and brightest Native educators and academics came from there. I’d even taught Creative Writing there one semester.

Mining Companies and First Nations: Many Success Stories in Northern Ontario – republicofmining.com

Mining Companies and First Nations: Many Success Stories in Northern Ontario

– by Norm Tollinsky

This issue’s Special Report on First Nation Engagement in the Mining Industry sheds light on an aspect of the industry that some may have thought incidental. In November 2006, a decision by the Supreme Court of Canada affirmed a requirement by government to consult with and accommodate First Nation communities with respect to mining, forestry and other economic activities on their traditional lands. This decision changed the way mining companies do business and caused the Ontario government to amend the Mining Act to reflect the new reality.
