Federal government invests in Tsuut’ina Nation health centre

TSUUT’INA NATION, ALTA. – The federal government is investing $1.9 million towards green infrastructure upgrades for a community health and wellness facility in Tsuut’ina Nation, Alberta.

The Tsuut’ina Nation Community Drop-In Centre for Healthy Living, also known as the Spirit Healing Lodge, has served the Tsuut’ina Nation for over 30 years with services and resources such as support for mental health, addiction, trauma and domestic and socioeconomic issues.

“This project will see necessary upgrades brought to a cornerstone of Tsuut’ina Nation and allow the building to serve the community for years to come,” said the federal Minister of Tourism and Associate Minister of Finance Randy Boissonnault in a statement.

The funding will improve the building’s efficiency by upgrading the heating system, boilers, lighting commercial kitchen equipment and windows and doors. Further green upgrades include the installation of solar panels and regrading and landscaping to improve the lodge’s drainage and climate resiliency.

Funding for the project is through the federal government’s Green and Inclusive Buildings Program.

“Tsuut’ina is making steady strides towards cultural preservation and the celebration of our history. Central to those efforts are facilities like museums, our schools and of course our drop in and healing centre. Intergeneration trauma is real, but can be overcome, with time, through our collective commitment to nurturing our community members.  he federal contribution to this centre is as important as it welcomed and represents a step forward on the path to reconciliation,” Tsuut’ina Nation Xakiji (Chief) Roy Whitney said.
