The Lands and Resource Department was opened in winter of 2011 to assist in the promotion and protection of Thessalon First Nation's lands and resources. The department promotes economic self-sufficiency in accordance to the First Nation's aspirations based on the social and cultural needs of the community within the Reserve boundary, the Robinson Huron Treaty area, and the Traditional Territory Duty to Consult.
