Council unanimously voted to support the Indigenous Centre Proposal through the provision of space during the Nov. 14 council regular meeting.

After their decision to table the decision led to backlash from the community, Cochrane town council voted unanimously Nov. 14 to support the proposed Cochrane Indigenous Centre with the provision of space.

A request for support was presented at the Oct. 24 regular council meeting asking for municipal funds to lease the Cochrane Visitor Centre on 1st St. as it was going to relocate to the Town’s recently opened municipal hub, The Station. At the time, Council voted 4-2 to move administration for additional information regarding financial and programming.

The request was to be funded fully for the first year to the end of 2023, 75 per cent of costs covered in 2024, 50 per cent covered in 2025, and the Indigenous Centre Board of Directors would assume full financial responsibility from 2026 onward or the lease would be terminated. An additional request was presented to council for representation on the centre’s board of directors.
