The Friends of Chippewa Park accessed the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund's Youth Internship and Co-op Program. As a result they were able to hire on Kelsey Agnew for a one year contract, starting in February of 2009. Kelsey is a graduate from Lakehead University with a double degree in the Outdoor Recreation, Parks and Tourism program (specialization in tourism) as well as Geography.
