The Provincial Government recently allocated funds to Nunatsiavut Government (NG) for violence against women and children.
Patty Pottle is the MHA for the Torngat Mountains District and Minister of Aboriginal Affairs.
She says three proposals were approved for these funds from the province.
One is for aboriginal women training workshops, sexual assault service provider training and for women’s history month.
Pottle says the Minister of Transport and Works, Tom Hedderson, met with NG regarding Labrador Marine Services.
She says they had also discussed some contracts that are expiring and ways to improve the services on the north coast.
Pottle says they are working on the latest news about the Sir Robert Bond that how it will no longer service Labrador.
Pottle adds with the shipping season closure coming in a few weeks, she would like to see more wood shipped for seniors in the north coast communities.
