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 heart and one mind) guided by the teachings of our ancestors. 

Helping families to be strong and healthy and connected to their culture is a crucial component to preventing children and youth from coming into care. 

Kw’umut Lelum provides programs and services for all ages that promote emotional and physical health, parenting skills, cultural strength, and personal growth.

While respecting Coast Salish practices and traditions, Kw’umut Lelum offers services and programs that keep our children safe, strengthen and preserve our families, connect to our culture, and enhance our community wellbeing.

Our agency provides services to anyone with a cultural connection to our Member Nations, either living in community or in the urban areas of Duncan or Nanaimo.


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 actively participate in program planning and delivery.


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