...is an exciting Social Enterprise that began in October 2016 at Stó:lō Nation’s Vedder Road site. Thanks to a Partnership-Based Labour Market Training Project funded by the Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction, this project supports workers interested in training in Warehousing and on sophisticated, computer-based light manufacturing equipment while also supporting indigenous artists.
The project involves training eligible participants, at the Sto:lo Nation Vedder Rd. location, to make multi-use of First Nations art designs by creating t-shirts, mugs and other collectible items featuring the work of local artists. Local artists, who have joined nations creations in a royalty based agreement, will receive a royalty for each item sold with their design, the remainder of the proceeds will return to the social enterprise to employ more workers in the manufacturing and sales.
