This longstanding relationship between Camosun and WSB allows you to learn within community. The formalized agreement states:
"We are committed to working together and, collectively, we honour our accountability to the students and communities we mutually serve. We work with good hearts and in the spirit of good will. We value our history together, which has been founded on developing relationships, mutual trust, and mutual respect."
