New Ways of Living Off The Land

Our Northern Manitoba location, reserve status and dependence on natural resources present challenges and opportunities in maintaining and developing a sustainable economy for our people.

We have a traditional economy that we want to preserve, but it is diminishing in importance as our young population seeks new opportunities.

Traditional Economy

  • Fishing
  • Hunting
  • Gathering
  • Trapping

We are working hard to build a sound platform for the future that is good for our land and our people. We will continue to live off the land but in new ways.

Focus on Economic Diversity

NCN has made a significant investment in the Wuskwatim Project, as a partner with Manitoba Hydro, but we are also committed to ongoing investment in a diverse range of economic development opportunities in tourism and construction.
