Lake St Martin First Nation moves home, school under construction

September 5, 2018

Members of Lake St Martin First Nation are returning home to their rebuilt community after the completion of 190 homes and vital infrastructure. A new school for Kindergarten to Grade 12 students has received $19.7M from the Government of Canada. The school is currently under construction and planned to be completed and opened by September 2018. “Our people have been through so much in the past seven years. It is comforting to know some of our members have returned home,” said Lake St Martin First Nation Chief Adrian Sinclair. “However, we still have over 300 people wanting to return to our traditional lands. Much work, negotiations, and planning must be done to see the next wave of members return home in the fall of 2019.” MB
