Work has begun on the construction of the new Assembly Building in Hopedale.
Judy Dicker is the AngajukKak for the Hopedale Inuit Community Government.
She says preparation began on the site of the new building last week.
The site for the Assembly Building is located just down the hill from the Amos Comenius Memorial School.
Colby Construction Ltd. holds the contract for the project.
The concept for the Assembly Building was inspired by a design by Alfred “Sonny Boy” Winters.
An architect had taken Winters’ vision and incorporated it into the final design.
Dicker says that the anticipated date of completion for the project is March, 2011.
