The Proposed Project

The proposed project has the primary objective to improve the health, cultural and social conditions of the Nadleh Whut'en Community through the installation of a new outdoor skating/hockey rink for the community.

The Scope of project works will include:

  • Resurfacing and upgrading of existing parking areas
  • Construction of an outdoor skating rink with a roof
  • Construction of bleacher style seating, a dressing room, showers, and a food outlet
  • Installation of a new septic field
  • Extension of utilities connections to the new facility
  • Associated ground and utilities works (ie excavation and lighting)

Vegetation clearing will be required of ~3000 m2 and total site clearing will be ~4000m2.  Site clearing is planned  between September and November 2022 and will be done with low impact equipment and hand tools.
