The Ginoogaming First Nation Timber Claim Trust was established in April of 2002, following negotiations and an agreement between Ginoogaming First Nation and the Government of Canada for compensation resulting from illegal taking of timber on Long Lake Reserve #77.
Vision Statement
The overall goal of the Timber Claim Trust Fund is to provide social, economic and cultural benefits to all present and future generations of the Members of Ginoogaming First Nation, no matter where they live, and to help create a vibrant community so that any member who wishes to do so may live, work or retire on the Reserve.
