Letter to Citizens on COVID-19


Effective March 18, 2020, the Nation will do it’s part to minimize the spread of colds, the flu, and, most importantly, COVID-19 by switching to remote operations. This means the office will be closed to the public and will operate with no more than 10 people at either the Anacla or Port Alberni Government Offices. We will still be taking your calls and dealing with the day-to-day operations. Thank you for your understanding, and please stay safe and healthy during this difficult time.

Please see the attached official statement from Huu-ay-aht Group of Businesses concerning their operations:
