THUNDER BAY — Former Fort William Chief Peter Collins, CEO at Chi Mino Ozhitoowin, stressed the importance of partnerships during the Partnership Successes panel discussion at the 2023 Prosperity Northwest Tradeshow and Conference on Feb. 15. The trade show and conference was held by the Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Anishnawbe Business Professional Association with support by NADF at the Valhalla Hotel and Conference Centre in Thunder Bay.
“I’ve been a part of the industry growth in the Thunder Bay region for the last 22 years as the chief of my community,” Collins says. “In 1999, Resolute (Forest Products), or Bowater then, announced that there was going to be a project in the Thunder Bay region and Fort William wasn’t on the priority list. So we came up with an innovative way to get to the top of the list, to be selected to host that state-of-the-art stud mill that is now operating and has been operating for 23 years. Those are the types of projects we have to continue to grow, that’s a really good revenue stream for our communities.”
