The Tsleil-Waututh Nation People reside on the North Shore of Vancouver, BC. Since time immemorial we have occupied Village sites all around səlilwətaɬ, also known as Burrard Inlet and this is how we have come to be the People of the Inlet. 

Revitalization is important here at Tsleil-Waututh, where you will see our language, culture, and stewardship of the lands and waters return to our people and we are once again prospering like the way our Ancestors had for so many years. We are one of the most progressive Nations in North America because we have deep roots and a great affinity for the land and water which is reflected in our work and interaction with the world at large. Working with the Tsleil-Waututh is a unique opportunity to experience the wealth of Culture and strength of business practices. 

The Tsleil-Waututh Nation has five departments and many thriving businesses. Experience a rewarding role in which you will be making a difference in the lives of others. 

We offer training and career development opportunities, a business casual office in a modern office building, and access to the TWN Gymnasium and Fitness Centre.
