Why work together?
Chief Lori Whitecalf
"The Community Economic Development Initiative provides the First Nations and the City of North Battleford with the opportunity to acknowledge each other's contributions and to value the sustainability and growth of the local economy. This continues to be the common denominator in our partnered success while continuing to eliminate barriers such as racism through a process of reconciliation of the past and a cultural understanding of each other".
"We are honoured to partner with BATC on the joint CEDI initiative in order to increase cultural understanding and build stronger relationships. The Terms of Reference is the first step towards an Accord which will set the vision and tone to provide leadership to our communities. It is our wish and decision to respectfully work together in friendship for economic benefit. To date, we have successfully identified common priorities and economic development initiatives that we will further collaborate on so we may share in the success as we move our region forward as one".
