Nionwentsïo, February 27, 2024 – The Huron-Wendat Nation and Immostar are pleased to announce the creation of Ya’ndiyatha’, a real estate alliance and exceptional partnership dedicated to the design, development, and management of real estate and commercial development projects in the Önonta’ sector, located east of Wendake. Meaning “mortar” in Wendat, the word Ya’ndiyatha’ refers to the foundations that will soon be laid in the Önonta’ sector thanks to this new real estate alliance.

Development of a 7,545,996 sq. ft. plot east of Boulevard de la Colline, near the Complexe sportif Desjardins de Wendake, will help Wendake grow smoothly and meet many of the Huron-Wendat Nation’s residential, commercial, and community needs.

This invaluable collaboration is part of a shared vision to develop the housing supply and respond to the critical housing shortage in Wendake. Ultimately, the new real estate company will create a mixed-use project that will include residential rental units, commercial and office spaces, and other uses that will help boost the local economy. This joint initiative embodies the alliance between tradition and innovation, paving the way for a future where real estate development hinges on respect for the environment, heritage preservation, local talent, and social inclusion.

“With the creation of Ya’ndiyatha’, we are ensuring that Wendake will continue to be developed by the Huron-Wendat Nation based on the needs of the community. It will give us the tools we need to develop innovative real estate projects both in the new Önonta’ sector and throughout the Nionwentsïo. We’re proud of this alliance with Immostar, a company well established in the region and recognized for its distinctive, innovative, and sustainable projects.”

- Dave Laveau, Chief Economic Development Manager

Responding to urgent needs

Development of the designated land in the Önonta’ sector is in line with the Huron-Wendat Nation Council’s desire to achieve full autonomy over its territory and to pass on a rich and flourishing cultural and economic heritage to seven generations to come. In addition, Ya’ndiyatha’ will act as an economic lever for the Huron-Wendat Nation, as the revenues generated will be reinvested in the community for the benefit of the population.

“We’ve been developing long-term partnerships and growing with the people who put their trust in us for 20 years. Today, it is with great pride that we put our experience of helping develop lands steeped in the history of a great Nation.  Mindful of the great sensitivity of this project, we’ll work closely with the Huron-Wendat Nation Council to create an inspiring, sustainable, and exemplary project.”

- François Pelchat, Partner, Immostar

First buildings in 2026

Phase 1 to build 135 rental units and 25,000 sq. ft. of commercial and office space is expected to begin in fall 2024, with delivery slated for late 2026.
