Ontario Press Release
June 22, 2011
Over 50,000 Ontario kids and their families will now have quicker and easier access to the right mental health supports, when and where they need them.
Sioux Lookout’s Emergency Control Group (ECG) was assembled at 8:00 p.m. on June 21, 2011, to implement plans to receive up to 200 evacuees from Mishkeegogamang First Nation (also known as Osnaburgh). The voluntary evacuation was triggered by an ongoing smoke alert resulting from a nearby forest fire, which, as of Tuesday evening, was approximately 16-18km east of the First Nation community and being affected by strong easterly winds.
