Athlii Gwaii Legacy Trust Working Committee

Audit, Governance 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.

COID-19 Response Committee

The Haida Gwaii 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. Applications for emergency requests will be considered, subject to funding availability.

Executive Committee

Youth Board

The Gwaii Trust Youth Board was created as a mirror of the Gwaii Trust Board. They make recommendations on application approvals, look at programming policies from a youth perspective and provide mentorship opportunities for youth.
