Ch’nook provides business education, networking opportunities and access to resources for Indigenous learners, leaders and entrepreneurs. Ch’nook supports UBC Sauder students, staff and faculty by creating avenues for cross-cultural understanding.
We strive to address the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, specifically numbers 62 and 92, and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
