Seabird Island Band’s Chief & Council understand the importance of sports, recreation, travel and other leisure activities. They also recognize the financial difficulties faced by families today, which is why we are proud to offer a sport, recreation and leisure sponsorship program to help our families stay healthy and active. Funding is limited and we encourage Band Members to host fundraising programs. You can book a room or table in the lobby from our Events Coordinator.
