Thank you to the wonderful staff, students, and teachers who spent their afternoon with me last week during my visit to the Squamish Nation Trades Centre after spending their morning with me at the Eslha7an Learning Centre!
I’m so grateful for the generosity with which they shared their time and experiences and look forward to supporting their good work

Ending Violence B.C. recognizes Squamish Nation woman’s community work
A residential school survivor who transformed her life is being recognized for her work helping First Nations families struggling with domestic violence.
Doris Paul – Xele’milh – of the Squamish Nation is being honoured by Ending Violence B.C. with the group’s Be More Than A Bystander award.
Paul works with the North Vancouver RCMP and West Vancouver Police as the Aboriginal Victim Specialist Worker for the Domestic Violence Unit, helping workers approach sensitive scenarios with more care.
Her work started after she acknowledged her own struggle with alcohol abuse.

Ask Mark Selman at the Beedie School of Business how he would measure the success of its executive MBA in aboriginal business and leadership, and he would likely point first to Ian Campbell.
Mr. Campbell is a hereditary chief and cultural ambassador of the Squamish First Nation in British Columbia and has been involved in negotiating land-use deals worth billions of dollars. “[He] has emerged as a real leader on the business side, not just the cultural side,” says Dr. Selman, director of the EMBA.
