The Pabineau First Nation community has leaped forward on many levels in recent years. It brings me great pride to report that Pabineau has become recognized as one of the most progressive and well-managed small First Nation communities in Atlantic Canada. I am also proud to have had the unique opportunity to play a leadership role in the recent surge in community infrastructure and economic development, including the following:

  • Construction of Pabineau First Nation Community Headstart (2005-06)

  • 5000 square foot expansion of the Pabineau Community Center (2008-09)

  • Construction and opening of Pabineau Seafood Restaurant & Takeout (2008-09)

  • Ongoing $7M community water system upgrade (2009-10 to 2014-15), including the retrofit of our existing water treatment plant, expansion of raw water line and roadways (Riverview St., Pabineau Falls Road, Pople St., Patles St., Sewell St., White Birch St.), construction of new water system reservoir,

  • Construction of new water tower

  • Construction of water treatment plant

  • Construction of 12 new Pabineau First Nation homes

  • Construction of the Pabineau First Nation Community Health Center (2010-11)

  • Construction of new Pabineau First Nation Powwow grounds (2010-110

  • Construction of Pabineau First Nation Community Daycare/K-4 (2011-12)

  • Construction and opening of the Pabineau Smoke Shop (2012-13)

  • Construction and opening of the Pabineau Gas Bar (2012-13)

In the wake of the recent community social, economic, and infrastructural successes, I remain optimistic that the Pabineau First Nation will continue to boldly march forward, take on new challenges, and progress as a thriving First Nation community.

I sincerely enjoy working for the Pabineau First Nation community as its Chief and CFO and am committed to doing my utmost to posture our community for sustainable social and economic growth and success.
