The Ta7lnew̓ás Education, Employment & Training Department ensures the Squamish Nation has integrative, effective, and streamlined collaborative processes to help our members meet their own education and employment goals. The department strives for each Squamish Nation member, on and off-reserve, from age 3 to adult, to reach his/her full educational and employment potential. The Squamish Nation works in partnership with school districts, post-secondary institutions, and other First Nations to advocate for programs and services related to education, employment, and training from private, provincial, and national sources.

Programs & Services
We strive to ensure that Squamish Nation Education, Employment & Training programs and services connect with members at the earliest possible opportunity and have programs and services ready for students that reinforce and promote personal independence and stability.
Ta7lnew̓ás could be interpreted as “learning with each other,” but in a wide sense like a group of people are learning with each other.

CAPILANO LITTLEST ONES SCHOOL
Principal: Jody Miki
Many members have expressed a desire to see the Squamish Language offered in school. The quality of Squamish children’s education must reflect and express our language and culture, which are inseparable in the teaching and learning process. It is with this intent that we make this submission to move towards a Squamish Nation Immersion school to reverse the tide of language loss. The Capilano Littlest Ones School offers K4 to Grade 2.
