Dear Business owner: "The Proposed Wataynikaneyap Powerline will present some business opportunities to partner First Nation Communities.  We are collecting information from local businesses in our community to help us capitalize on opportunities that will come from this construction. ALSO, we are creating a business directory book for our community and for the north that we would like your business to be a part of.  Even if your business is small, we want to include it in this important project!"  .
All 22 Watay Partner Communities are doing these business surveys.
