Open Mon to Fri: 10am to 4pm, Sat: Noon to 4pm

On April 27, 2021, the Kitimat Museum & Archives’ Strategic Plan 2020-2030 was presented before Haisla Nation Council.  Council voted unanimously to explore a shared facility.  Below you will find both the Executive Summary of the Plan and the full Plan, for your review.

A shared museum facility between the Haisla Nation Council and the Kitimat Museum & Archives is a critical opportunity.  The Museum and Haisla Nation have worked together over the past 52 years.  The Museum is aging and has critical space issues, unable to expand on area history and culture.  The Haisla Nation is in the process of identifying cultural belongings in collections around the world, to eventually bring them home to Haisla Territory.  A place will be needed for storage and display.  A draft Memorandum of Understanding between the Museum and Haisla Nation Council will soon be reviewed by the Haisla Language and Culture Authority.

Community input is being sought from you.

The Strategic Plan 2020-2030 and Executive Summary are here for the public to review and provide feedback. This online feedback is part of the exploration for the next step, the feasibility of a shared facility. Location, facility size, and potential funding sources will be explored next.
