The Chief and Council have directed the Housing Department to continue with Phase 3 of the Kaikaiknong Housing Development. Phase 3 is expected to take about 10 days, and involves Bridge Excavating entering the community to perform road work, ditching and watermain installation.
Community safety is the highest priority of the Council, especially during the current health crisis. Phase 3 will be conducted under a rigorous safety protocol that forbids any contact between the construction contractors and community members. Workers will be assessed for illness or symptoms before entering the community, and are explicitly restricted to the job site.
The Council and Housing Department want to assure Neyaashiinigmiing residents that this important work will be completed with no risk to the community.
