IFNA is moving out of their King Street office to make room for IFNA Students!

Following the success of IFNA’s two new Home Away Community student dwellings, plans for additional student homes were in the works for this year. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the new buildings will be delayed.

After looking at various options, IFNA has decided to move out of their existing office to make a third Home Away Community dwelling that will be ready for student occupancy for the first day of high school in September.

IFNA has made alternative arrangements to house their Operations in other locations to ensure there are no disruptions or interruptions of service or communications for IFNA Communities.

Mathew Hoppe, IFNA CEO, knows IFNA has what it takes to make this work. “What I am very proud of during this pandemic is the IFNA staff’s positive attitude, perseverance and courage to roll with the punches during these uncertain times. When talking to my Tribal Council peers and listening to activities in our region, I am very grateful for everyone’s hard work and professionalism when working under these very different scenarios.”

IFNA is working to support the success of their students while taking their safety very seriously in these challenging times. IFNA moved out of their 98 King St. address on Wednesday July 22 for renovations to begin.
