reconnection of community through hunting and fishing - elders teaching youth, teaching gillnet building (a skill that was passed on before), incorporating knowledge holders and elders. Building structures near fishing areas so elders can come participate and stay out of the elements. This will help our youth connect with the Elders and also teach them our traditional ways.

I would love to see more outreach services from the departments! Especially with Family/Wellness services. My understanding is there are some rigid geographical boundaries in which members can be served. I see the housing improvements but it will still be a lengthy time to even make a dent in the housing crisis. What can the departments do in the meantime in terms of outreach so that members can still obtain services? Especially if its for the well being of Squamish children? I would also like to see more information on the measureable outcomes of the Family/Wellness department, what is already in place to ensure theyre meeting their goals and mandates? Thank you
