Audit and Finance

The Gwaii Trust Audit and Finance Committee provides oversight of the financial reporting process and the audit process on behalf of the Board of Directors and is responsible for recommendations to the Board on all matters pertaining to financial policy and procedures and auditor recommendations.

COVID-19 Response Committee

The COVID-19 Response Grant supports programs and projects related to relieving mental health challenges and social isolation for vulnerable populations on Haida Gwaii, in particular Youth. As with everything we have learned with Covid19, things change quickly and Gwaii Trust will be flexible in addressing the needs Covid19 may create in the future.
