First Nations and Band Council Initiative
GIS Gas Infusion Systems Inc., St. Andrews New Brunswick based company. specializes in mass gas transfer utilizing a “game changing” patented technology. GIS is focused on infusing oxygen into both the marine and freshwater environments to improve the health and welfare of aquatic organisms. GIS is deploying its solutions in aquaculture, wild fisheries, research facilities and fish passage relating to hydroelectric facilities.
We recognize the First Nations possess traditional knowledge of wild fisheries in our rivers and oceans. We also recognize their custodial rights to river systems. It is our desire to strengthen our relationship with the First Nations and Band Councils and seek their involvement and support as we develop our GIS solutions for wild fisheries.
We are pleased to announce that Tom Mann has been engaged by GIS as a consultant to assist us with this goal. Tom has previously held formal positions with both private and public labour unions, as a mediator with the federal government and as a deputy minister with the provincial government. His focus has always been on developing relationships between parties, moving both entities towards mutual and respectful gain.
Tom will assist us in forming Advisory Boards, on a project by project and on a territory by territory basis, to include representatives of these communities with direct interests in Eastern North American rivers. These Boards will be chaired by Tom Mann.
This boards will create an open exchange such that ideas developed for one environment will be shared and exchanged with other parties who have similar interests. It is expected that this forum will create an environment where ideas are exchanged, investment opportunities are discussed, and benefits including training and employment opportunities can be explored.
Please join us in welcoming Tom to GIS.
