Programs & Services


Kw’umut Lelum, rooted in Snuw’uy’ulh, is directly mandated by member nations to safeguard the inherent right of our children to be protected from neglect and abuse, to thrive in a safe and healthy environment and strengthen cultural identities and family unity. We operate as a nutsamaat shqaluwun (people working together with one mind) guided through by the teachings of our ancestors. While respecting Coast Salish practices and traditions, Kw'umut Lelum offers services and programs that provide support and training to our nine member Nations.




Children, Culture, Community


All Kw'umut Lelum programs and services place children in the centre of their culture and community by drawing on cultural experts, elders and community leaders to activey participate in program planning and delivery.


Kw'umut Lelum programs are rich with Coast Salish language, tradition and teachings.
