The First Nations Financial Management Board (FMB) has expressed their opinion to Indigenous Service Canada that our community is in compliance with the requirements set out for the 10-Year Grant eligibility requirements. We will now wait for the decision from Indigenous Services Canada to confirm our eligibility on their part. Our organization has been working closely with the FMB since 2016 to eventually acquire a full Financial Management System Certification. So far, the Micmacs of Gesgapegiag Financial Administration Law, 2017 and our Financial Performance Certification has played a huge role with reaching this milestone. What is the 10-year grant, and how will it benefit Gesgapegiag? Follow this link to the FMB website for more information. https://fnfmb.com/en/10-year-grant.
This would not have been possible without the hard work of staff and Chief and Council as well as the support from the Community.
