Thanks to the hard work of our employees and the collaboration of our many partners, we have successfully implemented many different programs, ranging from the training of Crees for skilled jobs with Hydro-Quebec (over 50 Crees now occupy permanent positions), the rejuvenation of Cree community and family fisheries, the support of numerous cultural activities including summer gatherings and the enhancement of goose hunting facilities. This is not to mention the hundreds of kilometres of snowmobile and ATV trails already built throughout Eeyou Istchee.
On its 20th anniversary, Niskamoon Corporation salutes The Nation magazine and wishes it many more years of success and positive change.
Dr. Ted Moses Becomes President of the Secretariat
Order of Quebec recipient and former Grand Chief, Dr. Ted Moses was nominated to be the new president of the Secretariat to the Cree Nation Abitibi-Témiscamingue Economic Alliance on December 16.
No stranger to the business world, Moses still currently presides over a multitude of corporations, including the Cree Nation Trust, Petronor, 9143-1981 Québec Inc. (NEMAO), Apitsiu Construction Ltd., Kaweshekami Environment Inc. and EASA Mechanic.
The Secretariat was originally founded by Moses along with the late Albert Diamond, the current coordinator Pierre Ouellet and Val-d’Or Mayor Fernand Trahan.
Moses will be replacing Diamond, who passed away this past fall.
“I am pleased and honoured to be distinguished as the President of the Secretariat with its ambitions and challenges. I look forward in bringing our already good business relationships to another level,” said Moses in a statement to the media.
