Halifax-based Clearwater Seafoods announced a billion-dollar deal Monday to sell the company to a partnership between Premium Brands of British Columbia and a coalition of Mi'kmaw First Nations.
It is "the single largest investment in the seafood industry by any Indigenous group in Canada," said a news release jointly issued by the coalition and Clearwater.
The coalition will be led by the Membertou band in Cape Breton and Miawpukek in Newfoundland and Labrador.
