Vision Statement

“We, the Quatsino First Nation, proud descendants of the Gusgimukw who were placed on these lands by the Creator, have persevered throughout time by valuing our traditions and people and by continually exercising our inherent right to the lands and resources of our traditional territory. Through resilient leadership, consistent communication and working together we will empower our community to strive forward and succeed in reviving and rebuilding our unique language and culture, strengthening our governance structures and providing equitable services and opportunities that create a vibrant, healthy community that is self-governing, prosperous, supportive and carries our growing knowledge forward for future generations.”
We are the Kwakiutl. We have lived here, on the northeastern shores of Vancouver Island, since time immemorial. Our ancestors hunted and fished on these lands and waters, and developed a rich culture through which they celebrated the diversity of life around them. We continue to be strong by honouring all that our ancestors have taught us.
We are a small, semi-rural community of about 500 on-reserve community members, with about 350 of our band members living off-reserve. The Tsulquate reserve, where most of us live, is adjacent to the town of Port Hardy on the North-eastern tip of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Tsulquate is within the boundaries of the Regional District of Mt. Waddington. We are a member of the Kwakiutl District Council.
Farm to School programs bring healthy, local and sustainable food into schools and provide students with hands-on learning opportunities that foster food literacy, all while strengthening the local food system and enhancing school and community connectedness.
The Oaklands Community Association's vision is to provide a welcoming, engaging, sustainable community where all members can live, learn and thrive. We are proud to serve Oaklands, which is bordered by Cook Street, Haultain Street, Shelbourne Street and North Dairy Road.
