Economic Development Update, Strategic LLLL Partnerships Coming Alive

July 4, 2019

Treaty 2 territory – FNiT2T Senior staff met with Jody Linklater representing Indigenous Youth Build, ATEC, and Pewapun Construction Ltd., and teleconference with Dr. Andre Le Dressay from TULO Centre of Indigenous Economics along with key administrators, program leaders and educators from Assiniboine Community College (ACC) to further discuss the development of college programs for the Treaty 2 Territory.

Strategic partnerships are coming alive, creating the pillars of the FNIT2T Life Long Learning Lodge (LLLL). ACC was the first institute to embrace the partnership opportunity and since introduced the LLLL to Jody Linklater and Dr. Andre Le Dressay.

Jody Linklater has offered the LLLL to become a recognized Indigenous Youth Build Centre. Treaty 2 LLLL has drafted a Letter of Support making the initial step in establishing it self as an Indigenous Youth Build Centre. Dr. Andre Le Dressay along with ACC offered the LLLL to become the official TULO Centre of Indigenous Economics in Treaty 2 Territory. MOUs are currently being developed and reviewed by TULO, ACC and LLLL.

ACC has also offered to bring  other accredited and certified programming to the LLLL, and has offered to accredited and certify LLLL programs developed with Treaty 2 Knowledge Holders to formalize the partnership process and collaboration for distinct programs relative to the FNiT2T.

A building has been purchased to host the Life Long Learning Lodge and will be ready for fall sessions. Next meeting dates are being scheduled. Stay-tuned for the next update!
