Strategic Plan

Read the Plan

The Squamish Nation Strategic Plan 2020–2023 was adopted in February 2020 after being developed collaboratively over three facilitated sessions with Nexwsxwníw̓ntm ta Úxwumixw (Council) and Directors between May 2018 and October 2019. The objective of the plan was to create a shared understanding of our organization’s vision, values, and principles to shape who we are and where we go as an organization.

In September 2021, a new Nexwsxwníw̓ntm ta Úxwumixw was elected and in late November, the update to the plan was initiated. This work took place between February and May 2022, overseen by a Strategic Planning Team that included the Council Chairperson, Chief Administrative Officer, staff from several departments, and an external consultant.

Officially titled Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw 2026 – the Strategic Plan was unveiled at the Amalgamation Day celebrations on July 23, 2022. It defines who we are as a government and lists concrete actions to achieve our four strategic visions.

  • Txwnam̓ ta Stélmexw (For The People)
  • Wa ta Ts’its’áp’nitumulh Chet (For Our Government)
  • Txwnam̓ ta Temíxwcht iy ta Stáḵwcht (For Our Land and Waters)
  • Txwnam̓ Tkwétsi na Nchém̓usntúmulhaswit (For External Relations)

When the unexpected occurs and multiple priorities come in front of us, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw 2026 helps us travel together and find new opportunities while staying true to our values and mission.
