The SLAAMB coordinator, Bob Bruyere, has announced his plans to retire March 29, 2013. Bob has held this position since SLAAMB was set up December, 1991. Prior to this time, he was employed by the former CEIC as the Native Employment Counsellor from 1982 to November, 1991. Over this time, he has worked with all 25 First Nation communities and other Aboriginal organizations within the Sioux Lookout area. He plans to take life easy after his retirement but will be available to do some consulting work according to his own schedule but no more living by the clock. He wants to thank everyone especially the Sioux Lookout Area Chiefs and HRSDC/Service Canada for the support, respect and trust over the last 30 years.
