Shovels in the ground days after Norway House Cree Nation receives health money

Norway House Cree Nation is celebrating the beginning of a new era of health care.

On Friday, the federal government announced $100-million over the next five years to construct a new hospital in the community located in northern Manitoba.

The new facility will be the largest health centre in the province’s history to be entirely controlled by the First Nation.
