Future Projects

The Waskesiu Foundation is a community partner supporting and participating in the Waskesiu Community Council's Waskesiu Vision 2020 & Beyond Community Action Plan.

Waskesiu's Community Council committed to identifying a mid-to-longer term Waskesiu “community vision" with input from our entire community, to be followed in due course by a Community Action Plan. The results of that collaborative work are reflected in the Vision 2020 & Beyond Community Action Plan, geared towards ensuring that Waskesiu continues to be, and is enhanced as, a vibrant, environmentally healthy, economically viable, and unique community.

Moreover, consistent with (and as a supplement to) the 2000 Waskesiu Community Plan, the Community Action Plan is designed to inform, coordinate, and help guide the future planning process in Waskesiu.
