We are excited to celebrate stories behind three innovative community buildings in our area that make a difference to the well being of community members and the planet. Learn more about their inspiration and why they didn't just settle for doing something ordinary.

  1. Tammy Verigin-Burk, Executive Director of Castlegar Chamber of Commerce, will share about "The Confluence" -- the Castlegar Visitors Centre and Chamber of Commerce building under construction. This Passive House certified, Mass Timber building will serve multiple community functions and will operate with 85% reduced emissions. 
  2. Morag Carter, Executive Director of the Skills Centre in Trail, will share about their current project retrofitting a large community building in Trail to create a fully inclusive, climate friendly, community building. The building will support a wide range of community-focused programming from poverty reduction programming to economic development activities, and will be the greenest building in Trail.
  3. Unfortunately Nasukin (Chief) Jason Louie has a scheduling conflict, but we hear the words of Samatha Phypers, who tells us  the  story of the Wilfred Jacobs Building. The building is  a newly opened centre offering community and health services to members of the yaqan nukiy (Lower Kootenay Band) First Nation. It was designed to integrate cultural elements, including a roof inspired by the sturgeon nose canoe, as well as innovative sustainability and energy efficiency designs.
