Fort William First Nation in the Media

Chief Peter CollinsFort William First Nation
CEO Michael HardyFort William First Nation
The first half of 2014 has been a busy and exciting time at Fort William First Nation. During Council and staff meetings and in discussions with individual members, we’re constantly emphasizing that we need to work together to ensure a bright future. It is our sacred obligation to ensure a safe, healthy and prosperous home for our children, Elders, families and individuals. We’re committed towards reinforcing our vision to ensure that we move in the right direction. We’re prepared to face new challenges as a dynamic, unified force. Change is not easy. I’d like to thank our respected Elders whose wisdom provides us with guidance and strength. The support of our Elders is important in affecting positive change. It’s important to acknowledge the vision, commitment and capable leadership of the Chief and Council.
