Camosun expresses its sorrow and stands alongside the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc

Camosun College is horrified by the news that the remains of 215 children have been found in the grounds of the former Kamloops Residential School, which sat on the traditional territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc. Our hearts go out to the families and communities who were and are directly affected by this news and by the original loss of their children. We are all affected. This affirms Camosun’s commitment to redressing the impact of our shared history. In memory of these children, Camosun flags on both campuses will be lowered.

Greetings! Originating from Ontario, I have English, Irish and French ancestry. I am grateful to have been a visitor on the beautiful land of the Coast Salish peoples for the past 18 years. It has been a joy to work and learn with colleagues and students at Camosun College. I started my journey here with the Adult Basic Education Department in 1998, and was privileged to have my first teaching experience in 2000 at the Victoria Native Friendship Centre. Since 2004, I've worked with the Community Learning Partnerships Department in the School of Access, and feel fortunate for the opportunity to serve and learn from our many Indigenous and non-Indigenous partners and students in the community.
