The government of Canada will help with funding for a new cottage development for the Fisher River Cree Nation. The development will bring in both economic gains and new jobs to the area.
The First Nation along with federal and provincial governments will be developing 88 cottage lots along Lake Winnipeg.
"We are pleased to work with the federal government and the Fisher River Cree Nation on a project that will benefit the local economy while also creating more opportunities for Manitobans to enjoy this beautiful land," said Manitoba Acting Conservation Minister Stan Struthers in a press release. "The new lots will be ready for a draw next year."
The project will provide long-term economic growth the the Fisher Creek Cree Nation, not only in property revenues but in business opportunities that will serve the cottage industry.
Over the next two years Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) will be providing approximately $992,000 for the project. The federal government will support with planning and other areas such as road construction.
