Sagamok First Nation- Tree Clearing and School Construction Project

Sagamok Anishnabek First Nation is presently examinig the feasability of building a new school in their territory. During the study, a location was determined which would be suitable for this new school. In order to potentially move forward with the construction at a later date, the community will need to clear trees from the lot to ensure minimal disruption of migratory birds in the area. A building will potentially be constructed, pending available funding, connected to propane gas, and have water serviced by the community water system. A septic system will also be installed, and hydro will be extended tot he lot line. At this time, it is estimated that the buildign will exceed 1,000m2. 

Latest update

March 18, 2020 – Indigenous Services Canada issued its notice of determination and determined that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
