Sí:yá:ya Yóyes Friends Working Plan Together

Síyá:ya Yóyes Friends Working (Together) Plan is tailored to guide Tourism Ch’illiwack in providing tangible contributions to the reconciliation process with Indigenous peoples. Tourism Ch’illiwack retained the services of Dan George and Four Directions Management Services to create this plan to ensure Tourism Ch’illiwack is inclusive in their work and contributes to the National Truth and Reconciliation plan and to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

“The purpose of this important engagement is to enable Tourism Ch’illiwack to integrate their existing strategies, frameworks, and policies and expand their collaboration, skills, and expertise as they strive to build strong relationships with Indigenous Peoples in a culturally safe organization. Once developed, this strategy will guide programs, services, and partnerships, allowing the organization to work respectfully and effectively with Indigenous Peoples.” Noted Brian Minter, Chair of Tourism Ch’illiwack.
