challenge for all communities heading into the twenty-first
century will be to either create or build onto existing partnerships
that will clearly influence positive outcomes. Many of these
outcomes will be anchored in having technology infrastructure
that will support community centric activities ... Bell remains
firmly committed to working with VPI and the Keewaytinook
Okimakanak to aggressively pursue additional services ...."

Teevan, EDO (July 23, 1999)
exemplary work that K-Net has already accomplished assures
me that your Smart Communities initiatives will also be successful
Nations Health Information System, Health Canada - Richard Leikkari
Keewaytinook Okimakanak First Nations have expressed interest
in the FNHIS and are scheduled for implementation. The FNHIS
represents an important contribution to system capacity, health
planning and accountability ... Experience to date shows that
most technical obstacles are related to a lack of telecommunications
infrastructure. The FNHIS teams are therefore quite excited
to see that Keewaytinook Okimakanak is taking the initiative
to significantly enhance its telecommunications infrastructure.....
Keewaytinook Okimakanak, through K-Net Services, has offered
means by which technical skills can be developed and maintained
at the local level."

have listened as you have explained the vision for using these
