First Peoples’ Gathering House update
Construction is now underway for the First Peoples’ Gathering House. Supported by Indigenous host communities, the First Peoples’ Gathering House is designed as a shared gathering space for ceremonies, cultural events, celebrations, workshops and sharing knowledge.
This past April, the City of Burnaby provided $5 million towards the completion of this project. Acting Mayor Sav Dhaliwal announced the funding at a formal event at the site, together with Indigenous, provincial and municipal government, and university leaders.
The legacy of the First Peoples’ Gathering House extends beyond the current students, staff and visitors to provide a safe and welcoming space for future generations at SFU. Completion is planned for 2024.
