Abegweit Cemetery Project/Healing Garden

The objectives of the proposed Abegweit Commemoration Project are focused on establishing a place on the Scotchfort reserve for Abegweit First Nation members to respect their beliefs and traditions within their own community when a loved one or family member passes away. The project's primary objectives are as follows:

-   to establish a cemetery on the Scotchfort reserve to allow Abegweit First Nation community members to have a place to lay their loved ones to rest in accordance with their beliefs and traditions;

-    to enable Abegweit First Nation community members to bring their loved ones home, including a number of veterans, from their current places of rest which are located in cemeteries outside of their home community;

-     to commission and erect a memorial cenotaph for Abegweit First Nation veterans who cannot be returned home; and

-     to create a building or enclosed space, to host ceremonies, celebrations, or related events near the cemetery
