SooToday says the Federal Government of Canada has announced a $31,500 grant to the Missanabie Cree First Nation people to cover legal expenses for the establishment of a modular home building plant that will employ First Nation peoples building homes for their members in the Sault Ste. Marie area. The $2 million for the plant has already been raised, and production is set to begin next week. Chief Kim Rainville says, “We’re primarily going to focus on First Nation people and their housing. But, we will service the main-stream market as well.” MHProNews.com has learned the area under discussion is just north of Michigan.
