In response to requests from membership, the ratification vote will be postponed to allow membership to participate in additional engagement sessions regarding the proposed amendments to the Detour Agreement.
There are proposed amendments to Moose Cree First Nation's agreement with the owners of the Detour Lake Mine. Community consultation sessions about the proposed amendments will be held in the coming weeks.
The rapidly spreading cases are a result of community members continuing to gather without safety measures in place, therefore such non-essential gatherings must cease immediately. In effect until March 4, 2022.
Non-residents identified as a high-risk exposure contact or are experiencing symptoms are prohibited from travelling to Moose Factory. Non-residents that arrive via Wetum Road are not permitted to remain in Moose Factory Island but must travel on to their own community.
