Montreal Canadiens donate to the Multi-Purpose Building Project


Forwarded on behalf of the Multi-Purpose Building Project Team

The Multi-Purpose Building Project Committee wishes to sincerely thank le Club de hockey Canadien (the Montreal Canadiens) for their donation to the Project.

The donation of $30,000 was part of the Canadiens� Indigenous Celebration Night at the Bell Centre at last Saturday�s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

"We are very honored to have been invited to the Montreal Canadiens Indigenous Celebration night,� said Iets�nhaienhs Jessica Lazare, who is a member of the Building Committee for the Multi-Purpose Building Project. �We were even more ecstatic about receiving a donation from the Canadiens organization towards our new Cultural Arts Center, presented by Carey Price. It demonstrates that their organization is paying attention to a neighboring community′s needs, and is willing to use their platform to create awareness about Indigenous communities.�

Fundraising has been under way in preparation to break ground for the building that will house the Kanien�keh�:ka Onkwaw�n:na Raotiti�hkwa Language & Cultural Center, the Turtle Island Theatre, and Kahnaw�:ke Tourism, as well as serving as a community hub. Canada, Quebec and private organizations/businesses have already made commitments to financially assist this project, which is being described as being Kahnaw�:ke�s most important project in the past fifty years.
