Cultural competence workshop sees tremendous turnout

By Guest Blogger Katie CH Lin

When the Hesquiaht First Nation Place of Learning was built in Hot Springs Cove in 2009, members from both the local and surrounding communities and organizations were invited to celebrate its opening. This new school represented opportunity – but not just in an educational context.

Local money making a difference one book, one ride, one dance, one dinner, one plant, one Mother’s Day basket, one legacy at a time

Cowichan Women Against Violence (CWAV) Society couldn’t do our work without the stable and long-term funding of our government partners. About 75% of our program funding comes directly or indirectly from government. That constitutes stable income for our counselling, crisis and pre-employment programs as well as Somenos Transition House. In any given year, up to additional 10% of our funding, often in the form of multi-year grants, comes from large foundations like the Canadian Women’s Foundation and the Vancouver Foundation.
