–T’Sou-ke First Nation Chief and Council
Change is in the air for the T’Sou-ke First Nation and their economic development initiatives in and around Sooke. Ground breaking on a new Tim Hortons and Petro-Canada facility is set to commence in November 2017.
UPDATE: The address of this new Tim Hortons and Petro-Canada will be 6080 Sooke Rd.
The development of the facility is expected to take approximately eight months at a total cost of $4.8 million.
Employment opportunities for T’Sou-ke Nation members, both during development and following the opening of the facilities, was the driving force behind T’Sou-ke choosing to pursue the venture. Additionally, T’Sou-ke will be capitalizing on the tourism traffic moving through the City on Sooke Road.
“We are excited to begin construction on our newest business venture and look forward to the jobs and economic impact it will provide our community,” said Chief Gordon Planes, T’Sou-ke First Nation.
A job fair will be held in March of 2018 for the new facility. Grand opening is expected to take place in July of 2018, just in time for a busy summer season.
Since you’re here, we have a small favour to ask.
At 1.7 million page views over the past year, more people than ever are reading SPN. We had hoped advertising local services and events would sustain this service, but that has not come to pass. Advertising revenues are falling; status quo is unsustainable. Readers, please consider a small monthly donation. This can help secure the future of SPN. Business owners: Please consider an ad. More than massive local exposure, you will also be affiliated with an independent business that is 100% local, 99% paperless, and highly valued by the 98%. That’s priceless.
Thank you for your continued readership.
