chief-jim-bearCHIEF JIM BEAR

Chief Bear is humbled to serve the Citizens of Brokenhead Ojibway Nation for the 2nd term.

Chief Bear oversees all portfolios and business ventures of the Brokenhead Ojibway Nation (BON). Chief Bear sits on the Board of Directors for the South Beach Casino. South Beach Casino is an economic venture that benefits all Manitoba First Nations and creates employment for the community of Brokenhead and surrounding communities. Economic spin-offs have been evident in recent years as the Community continues to grow and develop into being a model for all communities to follow.

Chief Bear believes that by working together as a team and creating partnerships, Brokenhead will be a pillar of change for future generations through Treaty Land Entitlement. Protecting Treaty and Aboriginal Rights is a major focus for his administration while ensuring the citizens of Brokenhead are at the forefront economically and ensuring longevity of partnerships to ensure sustainability in the future.

Program and Financial Accountability is a priority for Chief Bear. Transparency is always at the forefront of negotiations for the community of Brokenhead.

On his rare moments of free time Chief Bear enjoys reading and snowshoeing.
