The Treaty Four Governance Centre houses many diverse activities within its structure. The overall concept includes a First Nations Keeping House, Chiefs Legislative Assembly, Treaty Four Governance, Multi-Purpose Building, Cafeteria, Gift Shop and Office Complex. The Centre and surrounding adjacent structures such as the Powwow Arbour are culturally alive with First Nations themes and traditions. The Master Plan for the development contains commercial and recreational buildings including a hotel, interpretive centre, RV park and restaurants.
The $7M first phase was officially opened in September 2000. The construction was completed by a workforce made up of 65% First Nations people.
