Earlier this week, Chief Terrance Paul announced that Membertou, along with other Mi’kmaw communities in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, and their partners, have acquired Clearwater Seafoods in an historic deal that has great significance today and will have meaningful impact for future generations of Mi’kmaw People.
I would like to recognize Chief Paul’s leadership and his success in growing Membertou into one of the most prosperous Indigenous communities in Canada. His vision to transform his community while preserving Mi’kmaw traditions has been strengthened through this partnership and helps to create much needed economic reconciliation in Canada. Furthermore, this partnership will lead to prosperity both for Mi’kmaw communities and non-indigenous communities in Atlantic Canada.
I congratulate all the partners involved in this progressive deal. Well done.
Yours very truly,
David C. Dingwall
President & Vice-Chancellor
