Stz’uminus First Nation breaks ground at Oyster Bay

The Stz’uminus First Nation is celebrating breaking ground on their new Oyster Bay development.

They held a ceremony Wednesday, after signing the first commercial lease for the project with the Ladysmith & District Credit Union.

Chief John Elliott says is an exciting time for the Stz’uminus people.

Brian Childs is the President of the Ladysmith & District Credit Union Board.

The 26-hectare development north of Ladysmith will feature four key components, including commercial, residential and assisted living areas, and a hotel.
