The Mattagami Trust has been operating since 2004, in the time since we have been operating – the community along with the Trustees have gone through many learning stages. First being the change of having a new entity, to understanding of our respective roles from the perspectives of community members, community leaders and to the new role of trustees, and now in our present day knowledge and operation of the Trust.
We have learned much during the past 10 years and we want to carry-on the traditional practice of Sharing now in this modern time. Many First Nations are presently in negotiations, involved in resource development, and/or involved in resource sharing stages – while others may soon be involved in this arena.
To this end – we are excited about our collective future and want to welcome everyone to this forum of sharing best practices, of speaking with experts, and establishing a dialogue to best position First Nations with that of the various industries.
