January 30, 2013 – The City is pleased to welcome Sam Achneepineskum to the position of Acting Aboriginal Liaison while the search for a permanent replacement takes place.

Achneepineskum comes to the City from Nishnawbe Aski Nation where he was the Residential Schools Program Coordinator. He is a member of Marten Falls First Nation.

Achneepineskum is the Acting Aboriginal Liaison following the departure of Anna Gibbon who was recently appointed Ontario Justice of the Peace.
