Wellness Forums

On November 19, 2016 the Gwaii Trust Wellness Committee held a full-day forum facilitated by Co+Host to discuss gaps in the wellness sector on Haida Gwaii.  Approximately 40 health professionals were in attendance, representing a broad cross-section (doctors, administrators, health centres, counsellors, nurses, etc.).  Many participants remarked throughout the day that the diversity of attendants made this event unprecedented on Haida Gwaii, and the opportunity to connect with each other, across disciplines, was a special aspect of the event.  A follow-up forum was held in May of 2017.

Economic Development Forum

On November 1, 2014 the Gwaii Trust Society hosted an all-island Economic Development Forum. The purpose of the Forum was to stimulate an islands-wide discussion about what can be done collectively to strengthen the economic future of Haida Gwaii.
