SIX NATIONS OF THE GRAND RIVER, ON – March 6, 2020 – On Tuesday February 25, the Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation (SNGRDC) proposed the divestment of the Our Sustenance property and the Six Nations Community Plan at the General Council Meeting. The transfer of these assets were approved by the Six Nations of the Grand River Elected Council (SNGR).
The SNGRDC Team is working collaboratively with the Six Nations of the Grand River Elected Council to develop a transition plan that is mutually agreed upon by both parties for both assets. SNGRDC anticipates these assets will be back under the operations of SNGR by June 2020.
About Six Nations Community Plan:
The Six Nations Community Plan transitioned with SNGRDC when it separated from the Six Nations Elected Council in 2015. At the time, it was decided SNGRDC would take steps to refresh the Community Plan given its importance to the Economic Development Trust. The Community Plan underwent a comprehensive update in 2019, the updated plan is now launched, and organizations community-wide have begun utilizing the Community Plan in their companies.
About Our Sustenance:
The Our Sustenance property also transferred to SNGRDC in 2015 with the intent to expand educational programming on food sovereignty for the Six Nations Community. The property encompasses a log cabin, greenhouse, 2 derelict buildings, and 8 acres of land. After attempts by SNGRDC’s Management Team to refine the business model and assess its fit within SNGRDC’s mandate, it was recommended to divest this property back to the Six Nations of the Grand River Elected Council in 2020.
