June 20, 2018

Treaty One Territory, Manitoba


The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs hosted a Manitoba First Nations Fire Forum on April 17 & 18, 2018 at the Ma-Mow-We-Tak Friendship Centre in Thompson, Manitoba. The purpose of the forum was to provide Manitoba First Nations an opportunity to learn and expand their knowledge and understanding towards preparing, mitigating, responding and recovering from fire events that may affect their communities. The deliverables were for First Nations to become knowledgeable on which departments and agencies respond to fire events and the various roles and responsibilities, an understanding of climate change impacts and forecasts and emergency management plan best practices.
