Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Center

The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Center affords youth from reserves in the region transport for classes, and the opportunity to train in the hospitality industry through on-site museum and cultural tours. There exists a demand for a larger First Nations presence in the area, to ensure the ancient cultures of the Lil’wat and Squamish Nation are protected. There is also a great need for economic opportunities which will benefit youth who live on nearby reserves.

You can be sure that when you book our Grand Tour of Canada & the Rocky Mountaineer tour, you are helping to support the center – which since 2008 has trained 410 youth. Whilst there you’ll be able to participate in activities such as a medicinal tea ceremony, bannock tasting, or a tour of the museum and grounds.

The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Center relies on grants and visits to their museum, cafe and other experiences they offer, in order to continue their training programs for youth living on reserves that are often miles away. Through partnership with Planeterra and integration into travel itineraries, the center is able to increase its visitor numbers, providing more opportunities to expand its training base and the range of visitor activities offered – and ultimately indirectly benefit up to 1,200 community members.
