Yesterday, Maskêkosihk (Enoch Cree Nation #440), immediately west of Edmonton, celebrated the opening of their new water pump house.

This project directly closes a fundamental gap in the quality of life between Canadians and Enoch Cree Nation families,” said Morin. “Furthermore, this project provided 18,000 hours of employment to 38 Enoch member employees, and is the foundation for our residential and commercial development vision.
