Investing with Skawahlook First Nation

 Print

Overview

Region:  Lower Mainland/Southwest

Nation:  Sto:lo

Skawahlook is located on Provincial Highway #7, almost exactly between the towns of Hope and Agassiz, in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

Sited within the Fraser River valley and only partially within the 200 year floodplain, the land on which the reserve is situated is largely flat, undeveloped, and amenable to development. However, our reserves are bisected by multiple rights-of-way (highway, railroad, and two gas pipelines) which limit some development options. The location of our reserves on the highway is -the-less a positive from a business development point of view.

The primary economic initiatives that have been undertaken within Skawahlook consist of retail, service and commercial initiatives housed in new building facilities clustered together at 58611A Lougheed Highway. The Ruby Creek Art Gallery offers passing motorists a selection of Native art. A large hall and banquet facilities are in operation, as is a picture framing shop.

Skawahlook First Nation is part of the Stó:lō Nation, a tribal organization of eleven communities. Skawahlook First Nation is a member of the Stó:lō Xwexwilmexw Treaty Association.
