Saul Klein and James Cowpar

The second cohort of Haida Owned & Operated program graduates celebrated their convocation from the program in Old Masset, BC on Dec. 18, 2016.

The cohort of twenty students began their program in February 2016. The Haida Owned & Operated program is designed and delivered on Haida Gwaii, over 11 months, in an interactive and applied way to turn participant creativity into a comprehensive plan to launch their business.

The Council of the Haida Nation invited the University of Victoria’s Gustavson School of Business to be the education delivery partner for The Haida Owned and Operated program. Financial support for the program came from Tribal Resources Investment Corporation (TRICORP) and the Province of BC.
