The project is part of $1.5 million dollars that’s been allocated for brownfield renewal, and is funding 19 projects in 13 B.C. communities.

Brownfields are underused or abandoned commercial, or industrial property that has strong redevelopment potential.

In a release, Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm says, “The $37,400 being provided to the Treaty 8 Tribal Association through the brownfield renewal program will allow the Association to expand it’s offices and provide more services. This is a great investment that will benefit First Nations and other local residents.

Since being introduced in 2008, the brownfield renewal program has provided close to $6 million for 101 projects in over 50 communities.
