More Money to go to First Nations Library…..


Entry #9: More money to go to First Nations Library

This short article was found on ebscohost from the UBC library, and describes how First Nations public libraries in Northern Ontario will be getting an additional $1 million dollars to upgrade its services. The article was written within the Ontario Birchbark Newspaper (May 2006) which has also been coming up frequently within internet searches. Just having an established First Nations newspaper speaks volumes for the benefit that any sort of organized public literacy can bring to a community.

In terms of my research, this is quite interesting because it now has piqued my curiosity as to how much each province gets each year in terms of funding. In searching throughout ebscohost for academic articles it appears that ‘gaming’ revenue is mentioned quite a bit within articles concerning the Province of Ontario and its First Nations populations.
