For Nicole’s legacy please give to the NISKA Fund for leadership & entrepreneurship. The fund is set up through the Temiskaming Community Foundation. It will be used to support the development of ideas, leadership and entrepreneurship in Northeastern Ontario.
The fund will be used to assist the development of innovative ideas and projects from entrepreneurs and social enterprises to help the development and strengthening of our Northern Ontario communities. This fund is truly to Nicole’s image and vision. This fund is dear to Nicole and Jocelyn.
A non-for-profit corporation, the NISKA Leadership Centre, will be set up in the next few months for the distribution of the yearly interests that will be generated from this perpetual fund. The non-for-profit corporation will also be playing a very important mentorship role being a connector for the advancement of ideas and projects. NISKA will be seeking the involvement from Northerners of all expertises, independant of where you now live, to become mentors.

Thank you in advance. Merci beaucoup. Jocelyn & Nicole xxx
The Niska fund (Niska is Canada geese in Cree) uses as its base philosophy the behaviours from the Canada geese, the most well known example of migrating birds. An understanding of these behaviours can reveal some useful lessons about leadership and the value of collaboration for any organizations, businesses and individuals. The Canada geese take flight from the shoreline, they lift off in squawking discourse. Yet, in a matter of seconds , a line begins to emerge. This line straightens, arches slightly and then bends sharply to form a perfect V shape. A flock of geese flying in formation can move faster and maintain flight longer than any one goose flying alone. Synergy is a law of nature.
