Two Feathers Forest Products Receives Federal Government Funding

(Two Feathers Forest Products LP, Ontario, Sept.1, 2009)  Eagle Lake First Nation received $829,000 from the recent Community Adjustment Fund (CAF) announcement. This will support the Two Feathers Forest Products LP (TFFP) value added initiative. TFFP is a partnership involving Wabigoon Lake Ojibway Nation, Pikangikum First Nation, Eagle Lake First Nation and Finnish based Wood Tech Group.

TFFP will develop two value-added forest products processing facilities, one at the Municipality of Red Lake and the other at Eagle Lake First Nation. The Red Lake site will house the primary sawing facility including log sorting, grading, and chipping facilities with a 9.9MW biomass cogeneration plant to generate electricity for sale into the Ontario power grid. Wood processed at the Red Lake site will be trucked to a planer mill at Eagle Lake First Nation for further value adding to specialized components and assembly ready building packages.
