Welcome to the team, Courtney!
Describe an initiative or project you’re proud of:
I am proud to have been a significant contributor to, and project manager for, the BC Assembly of First Nations’ Governance Toolkit. The Governance Toolkit was developed as an instrument to assist First Nations in British Columbia in building their governance capacity to eventually move beyond Indian Act governance at their own pace and based on their own priorities. The most rewarding part about being involved with this project was to hear from a number of First Nation communities that the Toolkit inspired them to examine and strengthen their governance and take steps towards becoming self-governing.
What does reconciliation mean to you?
Reconciliation means coming together as a community and lifting each other up by acknowledging our differences, respecting them, and learning from each other.
What excites you most about the future with CMG?
I am so excited to be a part of the Governance and Policy team at Castlemain. In particular, I am excited about collaborating with, and learning from, some of the best and brightest advisors in the country to make a difference in Aboriginal communities. I am passionate about building relationships and finding innovative and creative solutions to complex issues.
