Our community, along with seven others are participating in the Aboriginal Community Enterprise (ACE) project. ACE involves the following communities: Elizabeth Métis Settlement, Cold Lake First Nations, Buffalo Lake Métis Settlement, Kikino Métis Settlement, Buffalo Lake Métis Settlement, Kehewin First Nation, and Fishing Lake Settlement.
This project’s main goal is to start Aboriginal owned businesses in the community or around the regional area and to be independent. This plan is through a not-for-profit organization that is called Alberta HUB for the length of 2 ½ yrs. This is a great opportunity to any community and will employ a variety of people wanting to work near their area and at their trades. Over the next few years, we are looking forward to exploring and working with other areas for business and partnership.
