Purchasing and Restoring Kus-kus-sum is Reconciliation in Action
We have $700,000 left to raise by the end of August to purchase the property. Once the property is purchased the title will be jointly held by the Kómoks First Nation and the City of Courtenay. As soon as the title is transferred we can being the restoration process. Donate today as our Estuary Angel is matching the next $12,500 in donations.
