“I am very pleased to announce that the tendering process for the construction of the Guru Nanak Diversity Village (GNDV) project has been started by Colliers Project Leaders by posting the RFPQ on the MERX website. Capital funding for this important community project is being provided by the Provincial Government through Fraser Health Authority and BC Housing.” He shared.
During the meeting, the dedicated members of the PICS Society voiced their concerns regarding recent challenges to the organization’s reputation because of the malicious propaganda and lies being spread by a particular media outlet.
