Residents in Asubpeeschoseewagong Anishinabek, commonly known as Grassy Narrows First Nation, will soon receive retroactive compensation through the Mercury Disability Board (MDB) as payments are expected to be indexed to inflation starting next month.

Leaders in Grassy Narrows released a written statement on Friday saying that the province is committed to increasing payouts from the disability board, with the Minister of Indigenous Affairs, Greg Rickford, visiting the community on Friday to make that announcement.

"This is a step forward in righting one of the many wrongs that have been done to us," Chief Rudy Turtle of Grassy Narrows stated in Friday's release.
