Competitive Advantage

Sustainable development is vital to the integrity of Eagle Lake First Nation

Eagle Lake First Nation is building capacity for economic development in light of the changing economic environment in Northwestern Ontario. The community has committed to applying knowledge and skills. Appropriate governance models are in place to take advantage of new economic opportunities in forestry and mining.

Eagle Lake First Nation has trained its people, and skilled workers are ready for new opportunities. As the economy in Northwestern Ontario recovers, public and private sectors will require a workforce to fill the positions that will be vacated by the significant number of retirees. To attract youth back to the area, the Eagle Lake First Nation offers meaningful employment and opportunities for entrepreneurs.
