Beaver Brae to Get Aboriginal Business Program

A business program for aboriginal students is being expanded into five
more high schools across northwestern Ontario.

The provincial government is funding the Martin Aboriginal Education
Initiative at Beaver Brae, Fort Frances, Sioux Lookout and two high schools in Thunder Bay (St. Patrick and Churchill).

Lucie Santoro is a spokesperson for the program and says the students can enrol in two courses.

Santoro says the program is already up and running at Dennis Franklin Cromarty in Thunder Bay, and will be expanding into the five other high schools in the region in the fall.
