WHAT IS THE MUSQUEAM COMMUNITY PLAN?
Our Community Plan is called ‘We Speak With One Heart and Mind’. The name and the project logo were created by youth in our community. The logo represents a Musqueam spindle whorl and is meant to show how this plan will ‘weave together’ different parts of our community in one comprehensive plan. The wolf represents family and the thunderbird represents strength, honour and integrity.
‘We Speak With One Heart and Mind’ is our guiding plan - it will help guide us to a healthy, prosperous and positive future. It incorporates our values and traditional ways and describes the future we want for our children and our grandchildren. The plan also provides current and future leadership, administration and members with a roadmap to the future we all want. It includes specific policies and workplans for a future where we will:
- Make more efficient use of our limited resources;
- Better protect and improve our community, culture and traditional ways;
- Ensure more sustainable land use on our reserves and properties we own;
- Increase employment for members;
- Improve our Band’s overall economic health; and,
- Strengthen our governance capacity.
