Enactus Lambton’s Project One Circle Takes Top Spot at Regional Competition

SARNIA, March 23, 2021 – The growing success of Enactus Lambton’s newest project just landed the award-winning student group its eighth Regional Championship.

On Friday, March 19, Enactus Lambton competed in the Enactus Central Canadian Championships where they showcased the growing success of Project One Circle, which focuses on food security and agricultural business development in 30 First Nation communities across three provinces.

Specifically, the team presented the results of their work in Muskoday First Nation, Muskeg Lake First Nation, and Mistawasis Nehiyawak First Nation, which saw the construction of four greenhouses. Three aquaponics facilities and two food forests are also currently under construction.

The Enactus Lambton team presented their project virtually as they competed against teams across central Canada. The regional title has earned them the chance to compete at the upcoming National Exposition, which will also take place virtually from May 10 through 20.

"We’re excited to be named regional champions, but this is so much more than a win for Enactus Lambton. This is a win for the people we are working with. The projects we are working on in partnership with these communities are so meaningful and we're so happy to see that progress recognized by the judges," said Andreá Dyck, Enactus Lambton President and second year Business Administration - Accounting student.

Project One Circle is the latest in series of world-class projects launched by Enactus Lambton, who claimed the Enactus World Cup in 2018 for their innovative One Seed Project, which changed the lives of rural Zambian farmers.

Through individual needs assessments with each community they work with, the team repeatedly learned that food security, economic development, employment and a return to agriculture with land-based learning was a top priority for many First Nations communities.
