City continues Allandale archaeology study

A Stage 4 archaeology study on the Allandale Station lands is due to begin June 4, as the City partners with the various Williams Treaty First Nation communities and the Huron-Wendat Nation. It’s anticipated the field work will take about 24 weeks to complete.
“The City of Barrie remains committed to engaging with the appropriate First Nations parties throughout this process,” Michael Prowse, City of Barrie CAO, is quoted saying.
“We truly value the collaborative relationship we have with the Williams Treaty First Nations and the Huron-Wendat Nation. The City will continue to follow the archaeological processes, applicable legislation and any direction provided by the Province of Ontario to ensure protection of the archaeological potential of the site.”
A representative from the various First Nation communities represented by the Williams Treaty and Huron-Wendat Nation will be on site to monitor the site excavation, participate in any decision making as the excavations proceed and ensure that the site is culturally respected.  An independent consultant will conduct a peer review of the archeology results and findings.
