"This report is a summary of the second of a series of symposiums organized by the Sustainable Communities Directorate of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC). The purpose of the symposium was to stimulate discussion between community development experts from across the country and to explore strategies to integrate First Nations, Métis, and Inuit community development principles and approaches with government programs and policies."
"Three First Nation communities were selected within the Atlantic Region to become pilot communities in which to test the Model. Over 18 months, community plans (in both document and poster form) were developed:
Abegweit First Nation Community Plan; A Plan for Abegweit, a 40-minute documentary video, presents the community planning process in Abegweit First Nation; Metepenagiag Mi'kmaq Nation Community Plan; Pictou Landing First Nation Community Plan.""
