Skwin’ang’eth Se’las ('Helping Hand')
In December 2013, the GVHA, the Esquimalt Nation, and the Songhees Nation created Skwin’ang’eth Se’las Development Company, a not-for-profit corporation designed to assist in developing First Nations businesses. The corporation’s mandate is to develop First Nations capacity to manage businesses, to help members build technical skills and to increase employment experience among First Nations peoples. With directors nominated by the GVHA, the Esquimalt Nation and the Songhees Nation, Skwin’ang’eth Se’las is mandated to support the critical role of our local First Nations in a working harbour economy.
