The Paqtnkek Health Centre opened in 2008. This $1.3M multi-purpose facility delivers more than health programs to the community. There is a board room available for booking that can be divided into two areas for meetings, classrooms and private functions. The board room comfortably seats up to thirty people. When divided into two spaces, each room can accommodate up to fifteen people privately. Polycom videoconferencing and wireless internet are on site along with a projection screen for laptop presentations to help promote any organizations’ message clearly.

 

On site kitchen facilities are another prime feature of the facility. Catering services can be booked as well and easily provided on site. Contact Juliana Julian or Patricia Prosper to book a space for your next function.
