Economic Development

In 2003, Ginoogaming First Nation applied to the federal government and obtained authority to establish Rocky Shore Development Corporation operating for the First Nation band, Ginoogaming. During this time, concentration was placed on the bingo operation and some minor programs. After year 2005, the Corporation remained dormant until year 2008. After the general band election of 2007 and with a new leadership, Chief Celia Echum applied for funding from sources and restarted RSDC during March 2008. RSDC is concentrating on local community projects, some with guidance required and some with actual hands-on development.
