Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Cree Nation of Mistissini has chosen to isolates itself from more affected regions.

For many non-beneficiary residents, on top of all the effects lived by all, it means staying on the territory, no contact with family members, fewer holidays and isolation from their social network. Theses sacrifices, acknowledged by Dr Abel Bosum, are done to contribute in the local population's safety.

The opening of the fishing season was set to June 7th, for non-beneficiaries, but was already postponed to June 19th and is yet not-confirmed. It is with great deception that many residents are receiving this news. 

If the target to reduce the amount of tourists in Mistissini is honorable for the safety of the local population, not creating an option to allow local residents to fish is a prejudice that greatly affect the well-being of this minority who is well involved in the community's safety.

If you respect the sacrifices of your local residents, please sign this petition to allow them to fish on Mistissini lake this summer 2020. Not allowing the non-beneficiary residents to fish locally is forcing them into more unecessary sacrifices.

In time of crisis, we are stronger together. Help the non-beneficiaries protect your community by helping them to stay on the territory.

Thanks for your solidarity!
