Core Values

01.

Recognition

Recognizing and honouring that we are on Unceded Traditional Territory of the Keltsmaht and Ahousaht First Nation.

02.

Place-Based Knowledge

Every act from what we study and what we teach, to what we eat and how we live is connected to this “place.” As humans, it is important that we recognize our role within the greater web of life and try to deconstruct the anthropogenic view we place upon it.
