Emera Newfoundland &
Labrador (ENL) is committed to building respectful and cooperative
relationships with Mi’kmaq in Nova
Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador.
Emera Newfoundland & Labrador adheres to the following guiding principles throughout the Project and in our operations:
ENL signed two Socio-Economic Agreements with Qalipu Mi'kmaq First Nations Band in 2014 and with the Assembly of NS Mi'kmaq Chiefs in 2015. The Socio-Economic Agreements supported continued dialogue, promotion of training and of employment and business opportunities related to construction of the Maritime Link.
During operations, continue to seek opportunities to support Mi'kmaq communities with a particular focus on education.
