SIPEKNE’KATIK FIRST NATION – SUBDIVISION FEASIBILITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT
SCOPE OF WORK
Sipekne’katik First Nation requires a feasibility study and environmental assessment in order to assess a proposed subdivision/serviced area extension. This feasibility study will form part of the funding proposal for the proposed subdivision capital project to be submitted for approval by ISC’s capital management officer and/or engineer.
Project Goals and Objectives
The intention is to receive responses for the purposes of providing Sipekne’katik First Nation with a feasibility study and environmental assessment.
The goal of the project is to provide Sipekne’katik First Nation with access to serviced lots on reserve comparable to the levels of service that would generally be available in non-native communities of similar size and circumstances.
A feasibility study is a flexible process that should be tailored to the specific circumstances of each project. This study was triggered to support sustainable community growth on reserve.
The feasibility study is crucial in determining the most technically sound and economically viable options available to achieve the objectives of a capital project and provide the planning information necessary for a project to move efficiently ahead to subsequent stages (design, construction and commissioning). The alternatives must meet the requirements of the Water and Wastewater Policy and Levels of Service Standards (LOSS) that Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) is prepared to financially support.
