The MP for Labrador Yvonne Jones announced some funding for rural Labrador yesterday.
The Innu Business Development Centre is receiving $736,000 from the Government of Canada.
This funding is going towards the members in Sheshatshiu and Natuashish for business services.
The centre helps provide new business development, existing business support, and community capacity building.
Some of the services that locals can take advantage of include developing business plans, identifying training needs and developing a monitoring system to measure economic benefits of Innu companies.
This additional funding will help the centre continue operations over the next two years.
