Squamish Nation Headquarters Study

What’s possible for a future Squamish Nation Headquarters?

The Squamish Nation employs around 350 people and currently operates out of nine different buildings on the North Shore and various offices in Squamish, BC.

Leadership and senior management have identified the need for a centralized office building on the North Shore and an expanded office in the Squamish Valley as a top priority of the Nation.

As a result, a needs assessment and feasibility study for a new headquarters for the Squamish Nation on the North Shore is being conducted to explore connectedness, quality, and efficiency.

The purpose of the study:

• assess four potential locations for the future headquarters
• develop an understanding of the required spaces
• conduct a financial and market analysis

Who will be involved?

The project team will seek input from Squamish Nation members and staff throughout the process to understand their needs and aspirations.
