Human Resources Reminder from Capital & Infrastructure and Public Works

The Capital & Infrastructure Department and Public Works would like to remind community members that all inquiries regarding job posting and hiring must go through Human Resources (HR) in order to ensure a fair employment opportunity for everyone interested to apply.

With our multiple ongoing projects, there are many employment opportunities offered by Capital & Infrastructure and Public Works. And since all general contractors for all project in Listuguj are contractually required to hire a minimum of 30% local forces, we need all the workers we can get to ensure this standard is maintained.

Safe Uranium Radioactivity Levels

Capital & Infrastructure is pleased to inform community members that a uranium radioactivity test was performed by a professional geotechnical firm at the Busteed Addition-to-Reserve as a preventive measure for future developments. The results received in June 2021 concluded that the area is safe for residential uses. The values obtained were so low that they were very close to the laboratory’s detection limit. The laboratory has confirmed that we “should not be worried about any unusual radioactivity in the area”.

For more information or to consult the report, please visit the Natural Resources Building or call at 418-778-3022

The units are the first two (2) of a total of sixteen (16) rental units that will be assigned to applicants who fit the program’s criteria as defined by CMHC and the Listuguj Housing Policy.

This program is sponsored by CMHC and was made possible thanks to the hard work of many. We would like to acknowledge the efficient work of everyone involved in the process that has allowed two units to be completed and awarded to the successful community members in record time. We also want to give a special thanks to every worker working in the heat and rain to complete all sixteen units on time.

Applicants who are missing documents needed for applying will be given assistance. Community members who did not fill out a form will also have a chance to so.

Roadway Upgrades of Caplin Road – Drainage of Caplin Road

Please be advised that Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government has initiated the third phase of the Storm Drainage Upgrades for the Caplin Road Area.  As part of this major project, Caplin Road will have roadway upgrades including new pavement structure, new concrete curbs and new concrete sidewalks.

These upgrades will not only improve the experience for pedestrians and drivers, but it also benefits drainage and storm sewer collection. Small modifications to each driveway will be required and this will be discussed with each homeowner during the construction period.

During the work, heavy equipment will be periodically entering and exiting the work area.  We ask that you remain conscientious of this equipment and that you keep an eye on younger children and pets to avoid any accidents. Traffic on Caplin Road will be closed to thru traffic, but residents will remain open to residents.

The work is anticipated to be completed by early September 2021.

We recognize that the planned work will be an inconvenience, and your patience during these upgrades is greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions concerning this subject, please feel free to contact us at Capital and Infrastructure Tel: (418) 788-3022.

Sincerely,

Listuguj Mi’Gmaq Government
