The Wellness, Healing and Recovery Centre – Naming Contest – Deadline: May 31, 2021

Contest is now closed, thank you for your participation. More details to follow at a later date. 

The Wellness, Healing and Recovery Centre is nearing completion. The project management team (PMT) is proud to share that construction of the Wellness Centre will be complete by the end of 2021 and we hope to have our first clients in the first half of 2022.

The Wellness, Healing and Recovery Centre was conceived many years ago and the dream is finally a reality. As we get closer to the opening of the facility, the PMT is looking for assistance from our community members. We are looking for suggestions for a permanent name for the facility and some of its key rooms. The Wellness, Healing and Recovery Centre name was convenient during the project phases since it is very descriptive of the purpose of the facility, but we are hoping for suggestions from the community for a permanent name for the facility. There are also two significant rooms in the facility that may be renamed if adequate suggestions are received. These include the multi-purpose room which is a large event room at the front of the building and represents one of the main gathering areas and the traditional room which is included in the facility for various cultural ceremonies.

The PMT is offering five $100 gift certificates to Keethanow Supermarket for the top five suggestions as determined by the PMT. The PMT will review the provided suggestions at our June PMT meeting and will make the selections. Suggestions are due by May 31, 2021 in order to be considered by the PMT and to be eligible for the prizes. Community members are permitted to make more than one suggestion. If possible some background commentary on why you are suggesting a specific name would be very helpful during the evaluation stage.
