EDMONTON — The Nechi Institute, an Indigenous learning centre in Alberta, says it is in crisis mode after being handed an eviction notice by the UCP government.

In a letter, Nechi Institute CEO Marilyn Buffalo says the learning centre must vacate its current location in Sturgeon County by March 31, after 45 years in operation.

Buffalo says the eviction notice was presented by the “Jason Kenney government through Alberta Infrastructure.”

Alberta’s Minister of Indigenous Relations, Rick Wilson, tweeted about the situation, saying the institute had been given four months to relocate.

“This government’s priority is to expand access to addiction treatment for all Albertans, especially Indigenous Albertans who are dying at a rate 4 times faster than non-Indigenous in the province,” Wilson wrote. “We value the training that the Nechi Institute provides to Indigenous students but also recognize that the space currently occupied is urgently needed for the delivery of addiction treatment to Indigenous people.”
