The Gift of Partnership
On February 12, a special luncheon and gift-giving ceremony was held at the
Langley Member Centre to commemorate 10 years of partnership between CLAC
and the Aboriginal Skills Group (ASG).
The ceremony opened with Squamish Nation singers performing traditional welcome
and celebration songs. ASG then presented CLAC with a beautiful cedar
carving by a Squamish Nation artist.
CLAC and ASG have partnered on major projects in the Lower Mainland such as
the overhaul of Lions Gate Bridge, Sea-to-Sky Highway, Port Mann Bridge, and
“Hundreds of First Nations people from Squamish, Tsawsassen, and Musquean
communities have enjoyed the benefits of this partnership,” says Linden Pinay,
ASG executive director. “ASG is proud to be a partner in assisting Aboriginal
people find and secure both training and employment.”
