March Pop Up Contest – Listuguj Mi’gmaq Community Plan

It’s just about that time again! I’m getting ready to host my March Pop Up Contest (which will be on Monday March 9th). If you didn’t see me last month, I will be targeting different areas in the community this time around. The pop up contest is to help educate community members on the LMCP (Listuguj Mi’gmaq Community Plan) and help promote items from the plan that departments/programs are doing.

I’m asking all community programs, departments or organizations to please reach out if you have anything you would like me to help promote! Anything you and/or your team is doing that supports our LMCP. Remember, our four action areas are:

–        Healthy Community

–        Environmental and Natural Resource Stewardship

–        Entrepreneurship & Employment

–        Mi’gmaw Laws and Governance

Watch out for my promo on the LMG Facebook page and community radio stations that will include the answers to my questions coming next week! Have a great end of February.

Your LMCP Coordinator, Alexandra Barnaby-Willett
