ZEBALLOS— The Honourable John Duncan, Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development and Member of Parliament for Vancouver Island North, on behalf of the Honourable Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, announced federal funding for the Ehattesaht/Chinehkint under the federal government’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund.

Federal funding of $166,750 will help renovate the Ehattesaht/Chinehkint Band Office. These improvements are important for the Ehattesaht/Chinehkint, as the facility is used by all residents for a variety of purposes including community meetings and gatherings, in addition to administration. Project activities will include upgrades to the foundation, structure, roof, windows and doors, plumbing, and heating. The renovations will also supply the facility with the ability to gain internet access.

“Ehattesaht/Chinehkint wishes to thank Western Economic Diversification Canada for supporting our Transformation Project,” said Chief Councillor Rose-Ann Billy.
