The M.D. of Bonnyville will be working together with their neighbours.
The M.D. Council at their last meeting Wednesday agreed to submit a joint application with Cold Lake and Cold Lake First Nations to the First Nations-Municipal Community Economic Development Initiative Program.
“We agreed to be apart of a three-part committee essentially where the City of Cold Lake, Cold Lake First Nations, and M.D. will agree to sit down and really develop a new relationship,” said Reeve Greg Sawchuk.
“This is aimed towards tourism, economic development, and really just creating a new relationship.”
The program aims to support reconciliation through relationship building and the development of a joint community economic development or land use plan.
Once the agreement goes through, the partnership could lead to grant funding down the road.
