Since 2018, the Niiwin Wendaanimok Partnership has been working to secure the territorial interests of the Anishinaabeg of Wauzhushk Onigum, Washagamis Bay, Shoal Lake 40, and Niisaachewan. Their mandate has been focused on the twinning of Highway 17, which is proposed to be constructed over 3 Phases between the Manitoba/ Ontario border and Kenora (“the Project”). The Partnership is working hard to understand and mitigate the impacts of the Project and to secure economic opportunities for the four Nations.
This is the twelfth newsletter produced since the formation of the Partnership. Stay tuned for future issues where we will provide regular updates as the Project progresses.
