Indigenous & Northern Affairs Canada provides annual funding to administer the Community Economic Development Program on the Long Plain Reserve.
Indigenous & Northern Affairs Canada contributed through its Professional & Institutional Development Program funds to enable and enhance the capacity of LPFN to prepare a comprehensive community plan (CCP), formulating a vision for the present and future, developed by and for the people. The CCP will be a roadmap of clearly defined steps in shaping our community in the areas of culture and language, governance, land and resources, health, education, social issues, infrastructure, housing and economic development.
