Gwaii Haanas to receive infrastructure money

The Haida Nation and Parks Canada have announced $650,000 for new infrastructure in Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve.

Part of the funding will go toward building two new pools at hotspring island which will capture the new locations of thermal water flow.
The popular attraction and cultural site lost its original hotspring flow in the aftermath of the 2012 earthquake which struck off Haida Gwaii.

There will also be upgrades to the boardwalk at SGang Gwaay Llnagaay for both Haida Watchmen and visitors to safely access the site while protecting the ecologically and culturally sensitive area.

Haida Nation President Peter Lantin says SGang Gwaay holds long memories for the Haida Nation and that the village still tells stories today.
