The Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation is a strong, vibrant, and progressive Indigenous community that is approximately 1.5 hours drive from the heart of Toronto. Located nearby to the rural community of Port Perry, MSIFN has the benefits of small town life while having a close proximity to urban areas. As part of the Anishinabek Nation and signatories to the Williams Treaties and other pre confederation treaties, MSIFN is extremely proud of our Indigenous culture and long history of protecting our Aboriginal and Treaty rights. As owners of the Great Blue Heron Casino and creators of the Noozhoo Nokiiyan Economic Development Limited Partnership, MSIFN has an entrepreneurial spirit and expectation for excellence. We encourage team members to be professional, flexible, dynamic, team players, who have a self-starting attitude and a respect for all employees in a workplace. While working within clear lines of authority, MSIFN requires someone who can bring out the best in those who surround them. We are a busy First Nation, with many capital projects and opportunities ahead. The community and workplace is led by an elected Council of 3 (a Chief and two Councillors) and a Senior Management Team led by the First Nation Manager and including Managers from Operations, Finance, Human Resources and Health and Social Services.
