Wahkohtowin Development General Partnership Incorporated (WDGPI) was created by the member communities of the Northeast Superior Regional Chiefs’ forum (NSRCF) as a means of advancing regional strategic economic opportunities from a non-political, reconciliation-based approach.
Envisioned by NSRCF as an outcome of 12+ years of political activity in the areas of sustainable lands, environment, and governance – Wahkohtowin is seen as a balancing entity to the Social, Cultural, Environmental, and Economic framework sought by the NSRCF.
Wahkohtowin was formed by three Northeast Superior region First Nations to advance a number of strategic economic opportunities generated through years of developmental work by the NSRCF. It is a non-political strategic planning body with a mandate to advance an inclusive regional collaborative approach to economic development through First Nation – municipal partnerships.
Incorporated in April 2016 with a mandate to build and take up business opportunities related to the forest sector.
