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.

Certified Medical Laboratory Assistant (CMLA)

School of Health and Human Services

Tania joined the Camosun CMLA team in January 2021. She spent 13 years working as a Medical Laboratory Technologist; starting at RJH and then at Lifelabs for the last 11 years as a Technical Resource Specialist in Hematology.

Before moving to Vancouver Island, Tania lived in the Interior of BC, where she attended TRU in Kamloops and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Biology with plans to be a veterinarian. She discovered the world of lab, and plans changed! After years of working in environmental labs and at veterinary clinics as an Animal Health Technologist, she obtained an MLT diploma from NAIT in Edmonton in 2008.

Tania loves her human and fur baby family more than anything, but the Toronto Raptors are a very close second in her heart, followed by this beautiful island and the ocean.

Tania plans to pursue a Professional Instructors Diploma in the near future
