THUNDER BAY (September 7, 2018): Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) Deputy Grand Chief Derek Fox will join with First Nation and municipal leaders, service providers and other community officials to welcome secondary school students from NAN First Nations to Thunder Bay, Sioux Lookout and Timmins.

“Education is key to the success of our youth and it’s critical that every young person has the opportunity to participate to their full potential. Our students require an environment that is supportive and puts their safety at the forefront,” said Deputy Grand Chief Derek Fox. “These orientations are a way for students to come together and feel part of the community that will be their home for the school year. I thank all the community organizations for supporting our youth and participating in this important event”.

The Thunder Bay NAN student orientation will take place on Monday September 10 at the Lakehead University Hanger from 10-2 p.m. with food, refreshments and booths for students to learn from.

NAN student orientations will also take place on September 11 at Pelican Falls High School in Sioux Lookout and on September 20 at the Senator Hotel & Conference Centre in Timmins.

NAN has been hosting NAN student orientations since 2014 in Thunder Bay and shortly after started hosting them in Timmins and Sioux Lookout. The student orientation is open to all NAN students attending secondary school in these urban Centers.
