The West Wing
The West Wing of the facility is being designed to combine business activities and training initiatives while keeping with traditional values. Spaces have been set aside for on-going training in the facility coupled with businesses that can prosper and grow over time.
In addition to training for businesses the rooms can be rented out for cultural workshops for any First Nation in the region. This provides the First Nations with a proper space to craft and practice traditional methods such as canoe building, sewing, hide tanning, drum making, and wild game preparation and canning for example.
The combination of actual businesses in the same wing as the training rooms is a feature that will incubate entrepreneurs over time and become a one-of-a-kind regional economic development facility. This will set a good example for those youth and young adults who wish to become entrepreneurs of the future.
