2022

September 9th, 2022 Donald Luxton & Associates, D. Jensen & Associates Ltd, and Kinexus Consulting,  came back to Kitimat and presented new updates on facility options to the public at the Joanne Monaghan Community Room at Riverlodge.

A small but engaged crowd attended to hear the latest information on facility options. The Museum will be providing more opportunities for public feedback in the future and releasing a final plan study on the Museum's website, kitimatmuseum.ca, when completed by 2023.

The scheduled Haisla Nation Community Presentation for September 6th, 2022 was cancelled out of respect for grieving Haisla families.


2021

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.
