Recipient: Burns Lake Band
Areas: Burns Lake and Southside
Strategy: Planning and Research
Description: The Burns Lake Band has taken possession of the old high school in Burns Lake and has begun phase one renovations. In March 2004, the Band was unsuccessful in its application for assistance with renovations. This project, which includes the development of a business plan and completion of the engineering studies, will help the Burns Lake Band clarify feasibility and remove barriers to project completion. Burns Lake Band and NKDF will each fund 50% of the costs for this project.
