The MFN strategic plan calls for the Community Economic Development officer to support community and social development linking the economic needs to the social, cultural and environmental needs, wants and desires of our First Nation community and its members. It is a base to build the communities self-reliance and generate sustainable economic growth, community control and to increase the capacity for Mississauga First Nation members, both on Reserve and off Reserve to participate in the economy from an economically sustainable standpoint.
The program mandate is to effectively manage and be accountable for program funding intended to support economic development in training and employment support, business support for existing as well as start-up businesses, resource management support and other related economic development activities undertaken on behalf of the Mississauga First Nation and its membership to attain economically sustainable ventures.
