Come Work With Us

Seabird Island was founded in 1879 and is located in the upper Fraser Valley, three kilometers northeast of Agassiz, British Columbia. We are a multifaceted First Nations organization that includes government, business, service and non-profit. We exist to promote a healthier, self-sufficient, self-governing, unified, and educated community.

The Halq’émeylēm name for our reserve is Sq’éwqel, which translates to “turn in the river”. The English designation of Seabird Island is derived from the June 1858 grounding of the transport paddle-wheeler Sea Bird on an island bar in the Fraser River across from Sq’éwqel.

At Sq’ewqel, Seabird Island Band, we understand the value and importance of employing qualified, dedicated, and passionate people to work together. We know that a healthy community and our future growth is very much dependent on our key resources – our people. We employ over 300 employees that are passionate about and dedicated to our vision. Each workday, they help build upon Seabird’s successes to create a prosperous, vibrant, and healthy future for our people.
