Recipient: Village of Fraser Lake
Areas: Fort Fraser - Fraser Lake
Sectors: Community Infrastructure
Strategy: Tourism-Recreational Infrastructure
Description: Restoring the historic wharf on Fraser Lake was a high priority for the community for many years and fits in with the larger waterfront development plan. The completed wharf is expected to help the Village in its efforts to attract new private investment to the waterfront. NKDF directors were impressed by the strong community support and long term planning behind this project but required that an engineering study be completed first to make sure that the old pilings were useable. Matching funds were provided by the Softwood Industry Community Economic Adjustment Initiative (SICEAI) and by the Fraser Lake taxpayers.
