OHSWEKEN — Elected Chief Ava Hill and the Six Nations Elected Council were presented with a community safety award, celebrating Six Nations of the Grand River as a safe community.
Aboriginal Insurance Services presented the council with a plaque to recognize Six Nations qualifying as a platinum level community for outstanding health and safety.
Micheal Johnston of AIS explained that assessments of Canadian cities are done through a 240 question survey reviewing community services offered in a given location. The Canadian average score for safety is 82%. Johnston says Six Nations of the Grand River exceeded that benchmark reaching a 94% rating for health and safety for residents and visitors alike.
Johnston presented a plaque to Elected Chief Ava Hill recognizing the accomplishment, at Monday’s Committee of the Whole meeting.
