“As a reseller of electrical power equipment, Nbisiing Power will pursue Indigenous procurement opportunities with electrical utility companies in Ontario, with a focus on building cooperative and mutually beneficial relationships with communities, customers, and manufacturers. We plan to branch out to other key customers across Canada as we grow the sustainability of the business,” explains Christine Goulais, Acting Chief Executive Officer.
Chief Scott McLeod adds, “this strategic business partnership will ultimately help NFN diversify our economy and build capacity in a relatively new industry where there are plenty of opportunities that aren’t currently being realized. We look forward to working with our new partners to maximize this opportunity and deliver benefits for our community through employment and revenue generation.”
To date, Nbisiing Power has been focused on partnership development, community and external communications, recruitment, promotion, and dialogue with key customers. While continuing to focus on these important elements, Nbisiing Power is excited about longer term goals for the business, which include: utilizing existing local businesses and suppliers to support continued economic growth in the community; potential assembly and distribution of products in the community; and developing relationships with manufacturers and customers to create inventory within the community.
