The Federation of Northern Ontario Municipalities (FONOM) is pleased to host a meeting in conjunction with Nishnawbe Aski Nation on October 29, 2013 at the McIntyre Arena Auditorium in Timmins, Ontario.
The theme, Coming Together for our Children’s Future, will have Deputy Grand Chief Goyce Kakegamic explain the position of Nishnawbe Aski Nation regarding the First Nation Education Act. The event is open to school board participants, mayors, municipal councillors, and Chambers of Commerce from surrounding areas.
The territory of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation represents two thirds of Ontario and is mandated by 49 First Nations to define the roles and parameters involved on how to operate a distinct First Nation Education system. This territorial organization continues to work to improve the quality of life through existing partnerships and agreements, advocating on behalf of the communities it represents.
The Nishnawbe Aski Nation wishes to move forward with gaining more tolerance and understanding with its neighbours and is looking to work with the local school boards and neighbouring municipalities.
