Bella Bella, British Columbia, April 25, 2024 — The aging Wawiskas Community Hall will receive much-needed upgrades after a combined investment of over $3 million from the federal government through the Green and Inclusive Community Buildings program and the Heiltsuk Tribal Council.

Announced by Minister Jonathan Wilkinson and Heiltsuk Tribal Councillor Dawn Hall, this project will retrofit the community hall to provide a safe and supportive gathering space for years to come.

The Wawiskas Community Hall is an integral hub for the Heiltsuk people as it is used by the community for everything from recreational and cultural activities. This project includes upgrades to the building’s envelope, roof, windows, and washrooms, as well as the installation of new HVAC, Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) and LED lighting systems.

Through green and other upgrades to existing public community buildings in underserved communities, the Green and Inclusive Community Buildings (GICB)  program helps ensure community facilities are inclusive, accessible, and have a long service life, while also helping Canada move towards its net-zero objectives by 2050.
