December 8, 2017 – The Peguis First Nation Assiniboia Downs project took another step forward with a significant document signing today at the Peguis First Nation offices, located at 1075 Portage Avenue. The signing will lead to the official transfer of multiple land titles from the Manitoba Jockey Club to Peguis First Nation for the Assiniboia Downs property.
“The day has finally come that we, Peguis First Nation, complete the next process of the Assiniboia Downs land transfer from the Manitoba Jockey Club to Peguis First Nation,” said Chief Glenn Hudson. “FN Developments will now begin on the planning, concept and design phase starting with Hotel, Water Park, Conference Centre and Gaming Centre.”
The documents will now be sent to Manitoba Land Titles for official registration, this process is expected to take 8 to 10 weeks. Both parties continue to work together to bring this project to fruition for the overall benefit to the people of Peguis First Nation.
