Sagamok Anishnawbek Secures $24.2 Million in ISC Funding to Construct New K4-8 School

March 17, 2022

Sagamok Anishnawbek learners can expect to begin their September 2023 academic year in a new K4-8 school.

The community announced Indigenous Services Canada’s (ISC’s) approval of $24.2 million in funding for the elementary school in March 2022. The planned 2,829 sq. m. facility will be 40% larger than the existing Biidaaban Kinoomaagegamik school built in 1985, and will feature a gymnasium, cafeteria, library, science room and quality, functional spaces for high-needs learners to thrive.

“The construction of the new elementary school reflects the growing requirements that we have as a community. This begins with our children and youth…Our future depends on promoting an environment conducive to learning in a way that reflects both modern curriculum and Anishnawbe Aadziwin, who we are as a people,” said Gimaa Alan Ozawanimki, Sagamok Anishnawbek. “I extend deep appreciation to all who have been involved over the years that led us to this exciting announcement, as we will witness our dream becoming reality. We will continue to watch over our children in their formative years and witness with pride, their growing successes.”

Our Colliers Project Leaders team in Northern Ontario is actively supporting this project from initiation to closeout with comprehensive project management services.
