Ritchie Falls and Moosewa Resorts operate as a cooperative social enterprise, with the goal of creating mutual benefit for visitors and the community of Sagamok First Nation. A portion of the profits created by Ritchie Falls is returned to Moosewa Resort to support the community’s health, wellness and capacity building programs.
Our Community First
Moosewa Resort is situated on Poupore Lake and only accessed only by water. The primary focus of Moosewa Resort is to provide learning opportunities, cultural and healing programs for the people of Sagamok. Ritchie Falls and Moosewa resorts engage in a social enterprise model of financial cooperation where a portion of the profits generated by Ritchie Falls fund the operation of community programs and services offered at Moosewa.
Our goal at Moosewa is to provide direct benefits to the Sagamok Anishnawbek that have called this area home since time immemorial. By means of programming that promotes cultural awareness and pride, personal and professional development, as well as sharing amongst community members, Moosewa aims to provide meaningful opportunities to the people of Sagamok and beyond.
Community driven services offered at Moosewa include but are not limited to:
- Youth programs
- Traditional education camps (arts & crafts, trapping, fishing, hunting, traditional medicines, language of the land)
- Healing workshops & retreats
- Occupational skills courses and work experience programs
Moosewa Resort is a non-profit enterprise and generates the majority of its revenue from various funding agencies, with a portion generated from Ritchie Falls. The primary purpose of Moosewa Resort is for educational, health and wellness, and occupational training programs designed for the community of Sagamok.
Experience Anishnawbek Culture
Tourists are welcome to visit Moosewa when capacity allows and as long as visits do not interfere with programming taking place during that time. Moosewa Resort focuses on tourist activities that are fundamentally nature-based (non-motorized) and incorporate elements of the tradition and culture of the people of Sagamok First Nation.
