Current status: Complete and operational as of January 2024.

The Snuneymuxw are a vibrant First Nation of the Coast Salish People, residing in the centre of Coast Salish territory on the eastern coast of Vancouver Island, with villages on the Fraser River and waterways in the Gulf Islands. Snuneymuxw territory encompasses one of the most productive and resource rich areas at the heart of the Salish Sea. Since time immemorial, the Snuneymuxw People have resided in Snuneymuxw Territory as the first peoples, sustaining their lands, resources, and cultural and spiritual way of life.

DESCRIPTION

Tsow Tun Le Lum means “House of Healing”. This community-driven facility provides holistic programs and services to support individuals on their journey to recovery from addiction and trauma. Guided by Indigenous teachings and spiritual beliefs, Tsow Tun Le Lum offers a safe and nurturing environment where people can reconnect with their cultural heritage while finding strength and healing. On behalf of our philanthropic network we continue to fund program costs in the new centre.
