Recipient: Kitamaat Village Council
Strategy: Planning and Research
Description: As a part of its plan to develop a sustainable economic base, the Haisla First Nation has identified ecotourism and soft adventure tourism as a significant economic sector that will contribute to the First Nation’s broader economic and community development goals. As a part of this strategy, the Haisla plan to build a high-end RV Park adjacent to the MK Bay Marina currently owned and operated by the District of Kitimat. The project is anticipated to benefit the Haisla people by providing employment for public works staff and community members to build the infrastructure and facilities, and on-going employment of an estimated 2-3 people to run the business.
