WFN and Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations Scholarship Fund
SudburyINO sm

Both Wahnapitae First Nations (WFN) and Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations (Sudbury INO), a Glencore Company, believe in the importance of a good education for Community members for the betterment of both Wahnapitae First Nation and operations in the Sudbury area. Sudbury INO, through a formal agreement with WFN in 2008, has sponsored an annual scholarship fund to support post-secondary education and training programs. The scholarship fund is aimed at assisting community members of WFN to pursue careers in the mining related and mineral processing related fields.

Both WFN & Sudbury INO have established a joint Human Resources Working group to develop the criteria and mechanisms to select candidates and to administer this scholarship fund.

All requirements/documentation must be submitted together no later than September 15, 2016 to be considered in the up-coming semester & year scholarship (2016-2017).

Wahnapitae First Nation Commercial Lands Master Plan 2016
WFN CLM Plan2016

Letter of thanks from: Marilyn Nicholls, Economic Development Officer

Exploring the possibility of developing commercial land on-reserve, particularly for tourism along the lake front, has been noted as a possible economic development opportunity for Wahnapitae First Nation. In order to explore this opportunity further, Wahnapitae has undertaken the development of a Commercial Lands Master Plan to build off of the ongoing Land Use Planning process and the Community Economic Strategic Plan.

The focus of the Commercial Land Master Plan is on how to expand upon Wahnapitae’s existing lands, businesses and service offerings to draw more people by addressing gaps such as:

  • Lack of quality lodging
  • Availability of equipment rentals like canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddle
    boards, etc.
  • On-shore recreation opportunities such as mini-putt and other

At a general level. the purpose of commercial lands planning includes:

  • Desire to expand commercial development on reserve
  • Increase revenue generation opportunities
  • Implement the tourism component of the Community Economic Strategic
  • Ensure the sustainability of existing and future business opportunities
