Michael S.

Office Manager

Michael is the new Office Manager for Sq’ewá:lxw First Nation. He comes to Sq’ewá:lxw after 7 years working with Stó:lō Service Agency Health and he has also worked with the Fraser Region Aboriginal Planning Committee/Interim Authority, the Aboriginal Children and Families Chiefs’ Coalition, the First Nations Child and Family Wellness Council, and the BC Assembly of First Nations over the past 15 years. Michael is looking forward to getting to know and supporting Sq’ewá:lxw’s members.
In his role at Sq’ewá:lxw, Michael will oversee the daily work of staff both inside and outside the administration building and respond to questions, comments and needs of the membership.
Michael is a longtime resident in Coast Salish territory and currently lives in Chilliwack where he can often be found walking his dog around the Promontory hills or sitting on his back porch enjoying the view. Michael considers himself blessed each day to live in such a beautiful environment and often thinks about what it must have been like before contact and how important it is to look after what is here for future generations.
