Gingolx to get tourism improvements through work experience project

The Nisga’a village of Gingolx will be getting a bit of a tourism makeover thanks to a work experience partnership between local government and the province.

Twenty-one local residents will learn research, planning, construction, and project management skills over the course of the 25-week program.

The group will build eco-friendly campsites, trails, an outdoor performing stage, and a breakwater and moorage for vessels.

Project participant Elizabeth Stevens says she’s learning how to plan, work together with others, and set a goal to find permanent work once the program is done.

Under Job Creation Partnership, the province is providing over $7300 and the Gingolx Village Government is providing nearly $43,000.

The goal is to have the program completed by October, leaving the village with a campground and a number of improved amenities to help attract more tourists to the area.
