North Bay Indigenous Working Group in collaboration with the District of Nipissing Social Services Administration Board completed a successful application for the development of an Indigenous Child Care and EarlyON Centre.

Planning Group with representatives from Dokis First Nation and the North Bay Indigenous Friendship Centre completed a successful joint proposal for an Indigenous Interprofessional Primary Care Team to serve the Nipissing/Temiskaming Region.


Since both projects required Indigenous governance and leadership, both groups discussed to proceed jointly in the development of a single agency, the North Bay Indigenous Hub.

Dr. MacDougall Public School was identified as the best location and the redevelopment is underway, Completion is scheduled for December 2019.
