We provide a vital link for First Nations people to access health and education services as well as create economic opportunities for First Nations people to build thriving First Nations families and communities.
Because of the support we receive from funders, granters, and public donations, the Seabird Island Band is able to provide high quality services that hundreds of First Nations people rely on every day. Our programs and services are found nowhere else in Canada, not for the uniqueness of the services or programs, but because of the approach used to offer those services.
The Seabird Island Band employs over 200 staff that are passionate about and dedicated to our vision and with each workday, they help build upon Seabird’s successes to create a prosperous, vibrant and healthy future for First Nations people. Learn more about our team.
This vision of the future of Seabird Island was created in 2002 through the combined effort of Chief and Council and the Directors. Every year we revisit our vision to help us create Strategic Plans and Work Plans for the year.
