Kootenay Career Development Society acknowledges with respect and gratitude that the operation of our employment and training centres throughout the West Kootenay and Boundary regions happens in the unceded traditional territories of the Sinixt (Lakes), the Syilx (Okanagan), the Ktunaxa and the Secwepemc (Shuswap) peoples. We recognize the enduring presence of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people and are grateful for the opportunity to live, learn and work in these beautiful lands.
