Squamish Nation Appoints Division Executive Directors

Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw is on an exciting journey – rekindling our language and cultural practices, asserting our rights and title, increasing own-source revenues, and expanding the range of services provided to Members. A new organizational structure came into effect in April 2023 as the Nation continues to build capacity as a modern Indigenous government to support this vision.

The existing departments have been realigned into four divisions, each of which will be managed by an Executive Director.

  • Ḵ’iyáx̱an Ch’áwch’aw (Community Services)
  • Nexwníw̓mamin Ch’áwch’aw (Territory & Culture Services)
  • Nexwnínlhewá7nem Ch’áwch’aw (People Services)
  • X̱etx̱ítayus Ch’áwch’aw (Corporate Services)

We are pleased to announce the appointment of three of the Executive Directors, two of whom are Nation Members. All three start their roles on August 1, 2023 and will report to the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO).
