ʔaq'am Trading Centre recently held an official grand opening of their new Centex gas bar. The project was an initiative of the ʔaq'am Community Enterprises and marks another successful project of the local First Nations community. The ʔaq'am Trading Centre opened back in 2014 as a local convenience store and has now added the Centex gas bar.

Officials such as Chief Joe Pierre and ʔaq'am Community Enterprises CEO Christopher McCurry were on hand for the occasion.
