The Kahkewistahaw Landing Infrastructure project is the CIB’s second investment opportunity under the Indigenous Community Infrastructure Initiative.

Kahkewistahaw First Nation seeks to develop the project which will house: a medical centre, commercial units, an office centre, hotel and conference centre, industrial bays and headquarters of the Saskatchewan First Nations’ provincial political organization, the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations.

An urban reserve is defined as land within a city which has been purchased on the open market by a First Nation and granted reserve status by the Federal Government.

Benefits of CIB Involvement

Our investment allows KFN to develop the urban reserve more quickly and efficiently. The investment will be used for enabling infrastructure such as road work, utilities and broadband connectivity.
