February 21, 2024

FORT WILLIAM FIRST NATION – Indigenous Business – Fort William First Nation is at the forefront of a new type of federal workplace as Marcus Powlowski, MP for Thunder Bay-Rainy River, today announced the official opening of the first GCcoworking office on First Nations land. This innovative space fosters collaboration and reconciliation efforts.

Powlowski states, “This new GCcoworking space is the first of its kind, and I’m pleased that it’s located in my riding on Fort William First Nation. Not only does this new site show our government’s commitment to Indigenous reconciliation, it also provides a space for federal departments and agencies to advance their Indigenous-focused outreach and programming.”

Developed in partnership with Fort William First Nation, the site provides business and employment opportunities within the Indigenous community. It also supports the government’s goal of advancing Indigenous-focused initiatives by offering federal departments and agencies dedicated space for outreach and programming.

“The new GCcoworking site on Fort William First Nation is a great example of how we can transform existing federal office space into a place where Indigenous Peoples and public servants from multiple departments can work together on shared priorities, creating new opportunities for Canada’s public service to fulfill its commitment to Indigenous reconciliation,” said Minister of Public Services and Procurement, Jean-Yves Duclos.
