About the Project

The Alkali Lake Health & Wellness Centre features five supportive recovery beds and culturally appropriate recovery and stabilization services for Indigenous people in the Thompson Cariboo region.

The Esk’etemc First Nation partnered with The Government of Canada, First Nations Health Authority, Interior Health Authority, and BC Housing to fund and construct this centre. It is first Net Zero Energy Ready building to be built on First Nations land in a northern Canadian climate.

In addition to the supportive recovery beds, the Alkali Lake Health & Wellness Centre will offer variety of services designed to help provide assessment, treatment, and community outreach for clients with mental health and substance use concerns.
