Dr. Rick Ouellet receives warm welcome

Dr. Rick Ouellet was officially welcomed to his new role as Director of Aboriginal Education and Services on Tuesday, September 26th. The celebration included a traditional Musqueam welcoming ceremony conducted by Chief Wayne Sparrow, Elder Gail Sparrow, Elder in Residence Mary Jane Joe, Elder Shane Point, and Christie Charles. The ceremony included a welcoming song, a blanketing ceremony, and an honour song.

The event was attended by the Langara community and several special guests including Eric Gustavson, Constituency Assistant for the Honourable Harjit Sajjan; Dr. Lane Trotter, President of Langara College; Michael Jaworski, Member of the Langara Board of Governors; and Scott MacLean, President of the Langara Faculty Association.

Again, we would like to extend a warm welcome to Dr. Rick Ouellet. In addition, Chief Sparrow of the Musqueam First Nation has written a letter of welcome and would like to share it with the Langara community.
