We acknowledge and thank the First Peoples on whose traditional lands we reside.
The Western Red Cedar is central to Indigenous life and culture in British Columbia, and is known as the “tree of life.” The Western Red Cedar is used to make shelter, clothing, canoes (transportation), and is a medium for aboriginal crafts and artwork.

To what extent is your leadership life-giving? Are you like the Western Red Cedar, standing tall and firm in your values and personal history? To what extent are you straight grained, light, flexible, true, and versatile?
We use the Western Red Cedar to exemplify the quality of Leadership we strive for, and as a symbol of our commitment to honour and respect the history and culture of the Indigenous Peoples on whose traditional territories we live, work, learn, and play.
Honour and respect the wisdom of lived & learned experience.
Bring a curious mind and an open heart.
Draw on evidence-based models, techniques and tools to develop skills.
