The Board of the Gitmaxmak'ay Nisga'a Society has made an interim assignment a permanent one, announcing on Friday that Blair Mirau has been appointed as the Chief Executive officer of the Nisga'a Society.

The move is part of a restructuring of the organization that has consolidated the roles of CEO and EDO that operate out of the Nisga'a Hall on Third Avenue West.

Board Chair Cliff Morgan expressed the thanks from the organization, with word that Mr. Mirau will continue to expand on his leadership duties with the Society.

"We are extremely happy that Blair has agreed to take on leadership of our organization ... we are looking forward to many successful years ahead for our community and businesses."

For his part, Mr. Mirau, who is also a member of Prince Rupert City Council, noted some of the plans that lay ahead for the organization moving forward into 2017.

"I'm excited to keep working towards creating positive change for the local Nisga'a community. With renovations scheduled for the Nisga'a Hall and upgrades already underway at Rupert Lawn and Garden, we are preparing to grow while improving our products and services to the community."

The Nisga'a Society is the largest First Nations community within the City of Prince Rupert, with close to 1600 registered members. The Society provides a range of non-profit services many with a focus on youth, as well as education, language, culture and recreation initiatives.

The Society also operates the Nisga'a Hall in downtown Prince Rupert on Third Avenue, as well as the Rupert Lawn and Garden Centre located in the city's Seal Cove area.
