CFPR's Investment in People & Project Stories
This project has provided the City of Powell River and Small Craft Harbours with a beautiful new Wharfinger building, which is a stunning entrance feature into the community from Texada and Vancouver Island. Although there were some significant challenges encountered during the planning phases of this project, the end result is a substantial asset that will serve both the citizens of Powell River and the boating community for years to come.
Eight years ago a dilapidated old hotel was transformed into an historical community treasure through the partnership and efforts of the Sliammon First Nation and local businessman Dave Formosa. Though the project may have been considered a risky one by some, it has been very successful, and all parties involved are looking toward continued success and expansion in the years to come.
