Ronald Prochot - Manager of Public Works



Tl’azt’en Nation Welcomes New Manager of Public Works & Housing
Columbia, and some in foreign lands. He believes that the standard of housing in First Nations
communities should be no different than that applicable to other communities in Canada, or for
that matter some of the better quality homes built abroad. Over the past few years, with the
collaboration of organizations such as CMHC and the Carrier Sekani Tribal Council, and
following a course studies in the School of Architecture at the University of Manitoba, Ron has
focussed his knowledge and experience on improving the quality of housing on Reserve,
primarily with an emphasis on the elimination of mould and improvements to ventilation.
Ron is father to a son and two daughters who currently reside in the USA, and are mom
and dad to two grand-children. When not at work he likes to sing, and enjoys participating in
community choirs as a chorister or conductor. You can see him in The Mikado, which will be
performed in Prince George in May. “I appreciate the warm reception I received from Chief and
Council, my associates in Administration, and members of the community at large. I look
forward to helping to build the Team, contributing to building this community to meet its
potential. Thank you all for your warm welcome!” Please welcome our new Manager of Public
Works & Housing. Let him know your concerns. He can be reached at the Tache Administration
