Ongoing Opportunities

GVHA manages properties on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded lands of Lək̓ʷəŋən People. The Songhees Nation and Xʷsepsəm Nation are founding members of GVHA and help to steer the strategic direction of the harbour. Having Lekwungen voices in our organization at all levels is central to its success. Lekwungen People who are interested in employment at GVHA are encouraged to contact Judy Kitts, Director, First Nations Engagement, to discuss upcoming employment programs and possible employment opportunities. In GVHA’s recruitment process, qualified Indigenous applicants may be given preference and are encouraged to self-identify.
