Murphy Pottage, who is providing the training for free, was brought in by the N.W.T’s Department of Education, Culture and Employment, the Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy, Aurora College, and the K’atl’odeeche First Nation.

The lumber will be used for projects in the community, such as building cabins, and a few trainees want to use these skills to help build up their businesses. Residents will have access to the sawmill through the First Nation once training is complete.
