Gwaii Trust


The Gwaii Trust Society owns and manages a multi-million-dollar perpetual fund for the benefit of all the people of Haida Gwaii.


Today the Haida Gwaii Watchmen have their own management structure and they are funded by Parks Canada.

From May to October the program has provided seasonal employment for Haida men and women as young as 16 and as old as 78. For many visitors, meeting the watchmen is their favourite part of a memorable trip to Haida village sites.

They offer a first-hand introduction to Haida culture by sharing their knowledge of the land and sea, their stories, songs, dances and traditional foods.


Building a new, traditional model of child welfare that exemplifies the traditional Haida way of life to enrich the lives of children and families in our Haida Gwaii communities.
