Approved Projects

Waste Water Treatment Plant

$10.5 Million project designed to ensure the waste and sewage that goes out to the ocean is as clean as drinking water. The plant will be built to support Ahousaht’s current and growing population for the next 20 years. Located near the current waste transfer station, near the old sawmill site, the plant is currently in the design stage and is scheduled to begin construction in 2017-18.


$750,000 four unit one level housing complex for teachers working at AEA. Featuring two two-bedroom units and two one-bedroom units, this will be built on the north end of the subdivision just to the east of the round about.

Skateboard Park

With donations of over $30,000 in cash and more in services, time and materials, the SKateboard park is scheduled to break ground in late October 2016. Located beside the Youth Center, near the beach, this park will be used by the youth of Ahousaht for generations to come.

New 8 Unit Housing Multiplex

$1.5 Million eight unit housing multiplex, with four two bedroom and four three bedroom units, each with its own exterior access, private secure storage (with room for a freezer) and parking. New offices for the Housing Department will be built as part of this complex allowing us to renovate the existing Housing Offices into a rentable 4 bedroom home for rent.

Construction is scheduled to begin in late 2016 and will be built on one of the large lots in the middle of the subdivision.
