Promoting Wellness in All Areas of Life
The Social Development Department is committed to building on the strengths of children, youth, and families of the Líl̓wat Nation. The department’s programs and services are designed to encourage and support spiritual, mental, emotional and physical growth.
Social Development oversees four separate “sub-departments”: Líl̓wat Wellness, Lil̓wat7úl Culture Centre, Membership and Social Support and Skills Development. The fours departments work together to make wellness — emotional, spiritual, mental and physical — a shared priority. The department advocates for families, champions recreation, promotes Lil̓wat7u̓l culture, and most importantly, strives to improve the quality of life for every citizen of the Líl̓wat Nation. The programs that Social Development and its departments deliver have been designed to help individuals achieve success, whatever their circumstances.
