Opening remarks and First Nations ceremonial blessing

Event - 8:30AM to 9:00AM October 6, 2017 - Vancouver Island Ballroom

We are honoured to have a First Nations representative join us to open our Leadership Conference with a ceremonial blessing.  We are filled with gratitude to the Coast Salish people who allow us to work within their traditional territory.  It is our mission to build a strong working relationship between Coast Salish people and Royal Roads University with trust, humility, kindness and respect for each other.  We remember to begin each day acknowledging the history of this land, and will continue to walk softly on these ancestral lands of the Coast Salish people.
