CES worked with Mitaanjigamiing First Nation to develop a feasibility study that will bring forward accessible and culturally relevant childcare options for community members. The community recognized a need for local facilities after engaging with members through the completion of their Land Use Plan. With the on-reserve population expected to grow, and the closest childcare facility being a 45-minute drive away in Fort Frances, childcare may not be a possibility for some families. As project managers, our team worked towards securing the necessary funding that is now helping to identify potential sites, as well as develop community-driven designs that will guide the project forward through construction and day-to-day management.
