Here Chief Delores Alec explains what the project is all about: “The Nazko Gateway Project is a comprehensive large scale business development program that will include the installation of three phase power to Nazko Valley which in turn will trigger significant industrial and natural resource development projects in the region.”

They received the support of the Cariboo Regional District last week. There’s no timeline yet as to when the project will see the light of day.
