Strategy: Planning and Research
Description: In November 2006, the Northern BC Container Terminal Opportunity Study was completed and publicized. While the Container Study was comprehensive and informative, it did not focus on opportunities specifically for Aboriginal people. The proponent sought funding assistance from NKDF to complete an Aboriginal Companion Study. This project will serve to help communities acquire public and private investment, will help lead First Nations/Aboriginal workers to long-term job opportunities, and help promote economic activity throughout the investment area. This project is funded in partnership by NKDF, Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, the Province of British Columbia, and the Aboriginal Business Development Centre.
