Team

The WIT Programs are delivered by educators and community leaders across Canada. While each one of you – and the parents and caring adults who support children outside the classroom – are part of “our team,” here you’ll meet the people who keep the WITS Programs fresh, relevant, and responsive to feedback.

When we aren’t at work or volunteering, you can find us spending time with our families, enjoying the outdoors, and being grateful that we live, work and play in the beautiful Lək̓ʷəŋən territory.
