About Bimose:

Bimose was federally incorporated in December 1987.  The name Bimose comes from the Anishinaabe word “to walk” and was given to them by an elder as a reminder to “always walk with all our Member First Nations”. This is reflected in their vision statement.  Their office serves as a sacred location as well. The building is a sacred lodge, and through elder direction and teachings is kept by the Executive Director.
