Deer Lake Smart Workshop
November 26th to November 30th, 2001

The Deer Lake First Nation people, Keewaytinook Okimakanak staff, and partners Telecommons Development Group held a series of workshops dealing with how the community can incorperate the Smart project into the long term goals of the community.

We opened the conference with an opening prayer and asked the Creator to bless our time together and to give us the wisdom to learn from each other this week.

Prior to the workshops being held, a meeting with the community people was held discussing the agenda for the week, the progression of the Smart project and a presentation of the 2000 and 2001 community telecom survey results.

We held one day workshops for each of the following areas in Deer Lake:

After the workshops were over, a review and summary of the workshops was done between the Workshop Facilitators, DeerLake e-Center staff, and KO staff. See the E-Center Workplans generated from these results.
