We are a non-profit community organization that works to enhance the social, economic, physical, cultural and spiritual well-being of the 1,700 Nisga’a citizens that reside in the Vancouver and Vancouver Island areas.
The Nisga’a people have lived on British Columbia’s northwest coast since before recorded time. Long enough to see their culture thrive, adapt and endure. The Nass River flows through a land of sacred mountains and dense forest on Canada’s Pacific Coast. The Nisga’a Nation includes over 6000 people residing in the communities of Gingolx, Laxgalts’ap, Gitwinksihlkw, and Gitlaxt’aamiks –and across North America. In Nisga’a culture, traditional authority and the ability to govern originates from the connection between families and communities, and their land and resources.
The Nisga’a Ts’amiks Vancouver Society was incorporated on November 27, 2000 and its office is situated in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. Nisga’a Ts’amiks represents approximately 1,400+ Nisga’a citizens whose ordinary residence is within the greater Vancouver, Victoria, and Nanaimo regions of BC and provide services to Nisga’a living on Vancouver Island and southern British Columbia from the Pacific coast to the BC/Alberta border.
Our mandate is to provide liaison and contact between the Nisga’a Lisims Government, along with other Nisga’a locals and Village Governments, and Nisga’a citizens ordinarily residing in the Greater Vancouver, Victoria and Nanaimo regions of British Columbia, as well as to deliver social services and promote individual, family and community wellness for Nisga’a citizens living within our boundary.
To nurture a vibrant and prosperous community that is an integral part of a unified Nisga’a Nation.
To create a community that enhances the social, economic, physical, cultural and spiritual well being of the Nisga’a citizens whose ordinary residence is within southern British Columbia.
