Legacy Funding Projects:
Land Surveys & Land Issues Inventory

Brunswick House First Nation received funding from the First Nation Land Management Resource Centre in August 2021 to complete two projects that will address legacy land issues. The two projects include Land Surveys and a Land Issues Inventory. Both projects support the goals of the BHFN Land Code. 

 

Project 1: Land Surveys

The Land Survey project will adjust lot lines and road boundaries to reflect how the Duck Lake Reserve has developed. The surveys will adjust lot and road boundaries along Maukwa Street, Mountbatten Street, and the Pow Wow Grounds.

Project 2: Land Issues Inventory

The Land Issues Inventory will collect information about the use of land in the Duck Land Reserve. This information will help address historical and ongoing land issues. The inventory will also provide updates on the status of building occupancies and availabilities. The Land Issues Inventory will support BHFN with managing land under the Land Code

Please reach out to the BHFN Lands and Resources Department for more information about the Legacy Funding Projects.
