Residents of Lax Kw'alaams are going to be in the front row to learn some of the future plans for the Prince Rupert Port Authority, with the Lax Kw'alaams Council set to host port officials next week for a public presentation.

The two hour presentation session is scheduled for 10 AM to Noon on  Wednesday May 16th at the Lax Kw'alaams Council Chambers.

The themes that the Port plan to explore for their visit to the community include updates on employment numbers, a review of the status of current terminal operations on the North Coast as well as other related port activities and engagement with local communities. 

The session will offer up an opportunity for residents of Lax Kw'alaams to get a look at the growing importance of the Port's activities to the regional economy and how members of the Band can gain access to some of the opportunities that are being created in Prince Rupert and around the North Coast.

A Facebook page has been created for next week's event, where updates and discussion can be reviewed as the presentation gets closer.
