Community Infrastructure Projects Key To Building Healthy, Prosperous Aboriginal Communities: RBC Report

Other highlights from the report include:

  • Madawaska Maliseet First Nation in New Brunswick, is building the Grey Rock Power Centre - a roadside, multifaceted, commercial power centre that is expected to create up to 300 jobs for the band and surrounding community in a region hit hard by the closure of the pulp and paper mills. In fact, Chief Bernard says her Council went out of their way to ensure that 98 per cent of the investment would be spent locally, thanks, in part, to a RBC financing loan.
  • Ontario's Couchiching First Nation, home to more than 2,000 band members, has seen dramatic changes in recent years. From the addition of a championship golf course to a new 400-seat arena that opened in April of this year, the reserve has built revenue-generating facilities that provide band members with employment opportunities and access to modern recreation amenities, funded, in part, by RBC.
