Collective Economic Development, Indigenous Homes Innovation Initiative moving forward

July 22, 2019

Treaty 2 Territory – on Thursday July 22nd, 2019, FNT2T Senior staff Ryan Sutherland, met with Assiniboine Community College (ACC) staff Kate Pelletier Dean of Trades, and Gerald Cathcart Coordinator – Business Development, to finalize our proposal to Indigenous Homes Innovation Initiative. Together, we reviewed and edited our proposal that is now ready for final submission.

In Partnership, we have developed what we think is an innovative solution to building homes in our FNiT2T. Once funding is approved, we will develop the Ozhige Construction Curriculum together with Nations and Stakeholders. In Anishinaabe, ozhige means “s/he builds a dwelling/lodge”

This Partnership is key to the establishment of the FNiT2T Life Long Learning Lodge (LLLL) Ozhige Construction program that will take students from Carpentry Level I to Red Seal. ACC will assist the institute to embrace the partnership opportunity and is willing to support the LLLL Ozhige Construction program through its development and implementation.
