The leadership of Songhees Nation and Esquimalt Nation is pleased about the City of Victoria's decision to create a reconciliation grant to the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations for 2022.  This is a welcome and tangible step towards strengthening our common vision for unity so that all families in the region prosper and thrive.  We are hopeful that this initiative sets a precedent for all municipalities across BC and beyond.  We appreciate the work of Mayor Lisa Helps and Council on this effort, and for their ongoing commitment to building strong relationships with the original Peoples of the lək̓ʷəŋən Territory.
