Archived — FedNor Funding Assists the Waubetek Business Development Corporation to Promote their Programs and Services

A FedNor contribution of $31,500 enabled the Waubetek Business Development Corporation to hire a youth intern to help increase awareness of and access to Waubetek’s programs and services for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal businesses and communities within its catchment area. As part of the awareness initiative, a new online application system was developed. The youth intern was also responsible for reaching out to Aboriginal youth, the region’s future entrepreneurs, through traditional and non-traditional communications. The intern was tasked with helping organize major Waubetek events such as the Biannual Aboriginal Business Awards, the Annual Economic Forum, and the Annual Golf Tournament, which raises funds for Aboriginal Youth Scholarships.
