Celebrating a Milestone in Northern Ontario
November 6, 2021
The Wunnumin Lake First Nation recently celebrated the unprecedented success of a local convenience store that surpassed 1 million dollars in sales over the course of 10 months. During their celebration event, computers they received from us, in partnership with Microsoft Canada, were distributed to a number of lucky children, to help with their schooling.
The community benefiting from the computers is one of the most isolated and overlooked in Ontario. With Chief Sam Mamakwa of the Wunnumin Lake First Nation saying, “Too often, we are forgotten.” And continuing with, “Many expect us to stand up and find jobs. However, we often don’t have the equipment or software to even get the right training.”
Wunnummin Lake Lake First Nation is located at the centre of the Ring of Fire mining development in Ontario’s far north.
