KENORA – Bob Nault, Member of Parliament (Kenora riding), joined by Chief Donny Morris and residents of Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) First Nation, announced a Government of Canada investment to build a new school in the First Nation community.

“I’m very pleased to see that the Government of Canada committed over $42 million to build a new school in Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) First Nation, which will provide students in the community with an education up to Grade 12,” stated Nault. “This investment represents a historic turning point for the community as students will now be in a much better position to prepare themselves as they move on to further their studies at a college or university.”

Currently, students attending school in KI are only able to complete their education up to Grade 10. Construction of the new school is expected to begin in Spring of 2020. When completed in fall 2021, the new K4-to-grade 12 school will accommodate approximately 392 students.
