We are wrapping up our 2nd quarter with our Archaeological and Environmental Field Liaison Representatives out in the field. MNCFN has worked on more than two dozen FLR Contracts this quarter. It’s been a great season to date. We have, by far, surpassed last year’s numbers, not only in FLRs who have been assigned to sites, but in revenue for the First Nation.

MNCFN-DOCA held an Open House on July 29th which was well attended. There was information displayed regarding work in our traditional territory. Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Open House. Your presence is always appreciated. We had a free BBQ as well as free draws. Draw winners for the evening were Rodney White and Jamie LaForme.

We’d like to thank those proponents who donated to the 30th annual Powwow. A heartfelt thank you goes out to Enbridge, ITC and Union Gas for helping to make this year’s Powwow a success.

DOCA will be having an Open House on September 28 & 29, 2016. There will be free food, live music, a bouncy castle for the kids, classic cars, motorcycles, and most importantly, there will be proponents and information updating the community on upcoming and ongoing projects in our territory. Please come and be a part of making a difference in our Traditional Territory. The more informed we are the more strength we have as a community.

As some of you may know, DOCA is growing. Darin Wybenga is the Traditional Knowledge and Land Use Coordinator with a primary focus on the history of land use. Darin brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to DOCA which can only enhance the awareness of MNCFN.
