Economic Development is a key component to the Millbrook First Nation’s Success.
Millbrook First Nation Community:
Building and Growing
The Millbrook First Nation, located adjacent to the Town of Truro, Nova Scotia, has become a model community for other First Nations across the country. Under the strong leadership of Chief and Council, the health and well being of the Band membership is the first priority.
The community has programs in place to help its children succeed in school, both academically and socially.
"Millbrook students go to provincial schools, so we work closely with the schools and school board," says Debbie Gloade, Millbrook's Education Director. "That includes having Native Support workers in local schools where our students attend. We have many initiatives to help promote education, and give individualized attention to all the students, like after-school programs, lunch programs and literacy support. "Because of these initiatives, success in schools continues to increase."
“Continuation of the success seen in the schools and in addition restore the language and culture of the Mi’kmaq people. Also, looking to providing alternatives resources and methods to transition students from the present educational system to the work force by providing and enhancing employment skills.” - Chief Bob Gloade, Millbrook First Nation
