With a population of less than 1,000, 80 new jobs could be a significant boon to both on-reserve employment and to the local economy.
Nipissing First Nation’s (NFN) recently announced cannabis cultivation and processing facility is set to bring more than 80 new jobs to the region, reports the owner of the land on which the facility is set to be built.
Natalie Payette-Chevrier owns the lot where the approximately 30,000 sq. ft. facility will be built by Golden Harvest Organics, Inc. (GHO).
“She will be the first female First Nation entrepreneur in the country to take on a project of this size and scope,” GHO chief operating officer Adam Allard told BayToday.
