PRINCE RUPERT, B.C. — Lax Kw’Alaams First Nation, in northwestern B.C., is being added to Canada’s highway system through a $11-million road building project.

Called the Tuck Inlet Road project, it will connect the Lax Kw’Alaams community, which is currently accessible only by air or water, with an all-weather road linked to other towns in the northwest.

The project is being paid for on a cost-sharing basis between Ottawa, the B.C. Government and the First Nation. B.C. is providing $5.5 million, Canada $3.7 million and the First Nation $1.8 million for the road.

Located in Port Simpson, the Lax Kw’Alaams First Nation is one of the largest bands in British Columbia with a total population of 2,700.
