Our Future

Comprehensive Community Planning

For a number of years, we have been actively engaged in comprehensive community planning and undertaking various capital projects. Our approach to these activities has been a collaborative, internally-driven process, involving Chief and Council, residents of Gwa-yas-dums Village and off reserve members.

Community Economic Development Strategy

The Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation places great importance on our traditional economy, which is rooted in the abundant marine resources and in the other local resources throughout our Territory.

The Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation continually seeks key opportunities for community economic development and aims to do so through respectful, professional economic development partnerships.
