Strengthening our communities

Bimose translates from the Anishinaabe word ‘to walk’. 
Our company uses this as a reminder to always walk with our Member First Nations.

We are pleased to announce our first Anishinaabemowin Camp. The focus of this camp is to provide hands on experiences and resources for those committed to Language Revitalization within our Bimose Communities.
