Bruce Power is investing another $400,000 in local Indigenous community initiatives this year.
Launched in 2016, the Investment Fund has focused on several areas including cultural, social, educational, and environmental issues in the communities of the Saugeen and Nawash Unceded First Nations.
The initiatives also support the Historic Saugeen Métis and the Métis Nation of Ontario.
In 2018, Bruce Power's support will include investing in Saugeen's library expansion and construction of a building for the food bank.
Money will also go toward the Nawash Prayer Walk for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, which is a cross-country walk by community members.
Funding will help support student programs at the elementary, secondary and post-secondary levels at Nawash.
A number of organizations that have partnered with Saugeen and Nawash will also receive funding from Bruce Power's Community Investment and Sponsorship Program this year.
Some include, Canadian Feed the Children, the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre,and the University of Waterloo's Engineering Science Quest program.
