On Wednesday, July 20, 2022, Treaty One First Nations and the City of Winnipeg signed the Gaawijijigemangit Agreement, a Municipal Development & Services Agreement, for the planned development of Naawi-Oodena, the former site of the Kapyong Barracks. The word Gaawijijigemangit means “Working Together in Partnership” in the Ojibway language.  Treaty One First Nations will develop commercial, residential properties and amenities Naawi-Oodena.  The development is set to take place in five phases over the next few years. 

TDS is a proud partner of Treaty One Nation and Treaty One Development Corporation as their full legal services provider and we look forward to continuing to work together throughout the development of Naawi-Oodena.
