Missanabie Cree First Nation, N1 Strategy Inc., a division of N1 Solutions Inc., and The Machine Shop have confirmed the signing of a partnership between the three allies.
The affirmation of the partnership comes with multiple opportunities and a proposed plan to incorporate education, tourism, and the Indigenous experience in northern Ontario, according to a press release that was sent to Sault Business Matters.
According to the release, Missanabie Cree First Nation chief Jason Gauthier brings a wealth of knowledge and a historical perspective to the region to help educate the public on the traditional territory. Just recently, Gauthier signed a memorandum of understanding with the proposed owners of the Algoma Central Railway.
The new partnership will thus allow discussion relative to the logistics for the Agawa Canyon Tour Train and the Bear Passenger Train.
The Machine Shop, along with the new train station, serves as the site for the Agawa Canyon Tour Train.
The new location and surrounding Canal District area will aim to provide a visitor, cultural and entertainment destination within Northern Ontario. Inside the train station, there will be dedicated cultural displays, authentic storytelling and other hands-on experiences.
The exhibit will aim to provide concierge service to visitors, showcasing all things Sault Ste. Marie, Algoma region and across Northern Ontario.
