The Proposed Project

The N'Quatqua First Nation (the Proponent) is proposing to construct a 1,297 square metre (m2) multi-use facility entirely on previously developed N'Quatqua First Nation Indian Reserve Lands (Nequatque No. 1). The N'Quatqua Multi-Use Facility Project (the Project) would provide cultural, recreational, wellness, and community infrastructure to serve the N'Quatqua First Nation and nearby communities. The facility would be located on the site of the current community hall and administration building, which will be demolished as part of the Project. The new building will feature a community hall/gymnasium, offices, a fitness centre, bathroom facilities, a cultural chamber, cultural reception areas, and utility/service spaces, as well as a parking lot and an outdoor cultural gathering space. The building would be constructed to exceed performance requirements of the National Energy Code of Canada and would incorporate green technology and sustainable building practices.

The proposed project would include the following components:

  • Demolition of existing community centre and band office;
  • Site preparation works;
  • Design and construction of new multi-use facility including installation of mechanical, plumbing, septic, and electrical utilities; and
  • Completion of exterior features including cultural gathering space, landscaping, and parking lot.
