Working as a close-knit team, the GMRC staff ensures planning reflects the management priorities of its member-communities. The GMRC is also responsible for ensuring effective communication with the Mi’gmaq community and community at large of its mandate, activity, and outcomes.
In the pursuit of various partnering and leveraging opportunities, the GMRC staff participates in various committees and processes to assist, strengthen and complement the existing relationship between member organizations, DFO, and stakeholders/partners with the view of allowing for meaningful Mi’gmaq input, information gathering, knowledge sharing and active participation.
The GMRC participates in collaborative management structures that contribute to integrated ecosystem/watershed management and planning processes. This activity builds a corporate presence for the GMRC, as a representative of its member communities, on various boards and committees associated with sound aquatic and natural resource management; as well, serves to advance the GMRC’s agenda. The First Nation communities benefit from increased knowledge and participation in aquatic stewardship activities, as well as relationship building with organizations not traditionally aligned with Mi’gmaq interests.
