2021 Safety Plan

Plans subject change in conjunction with evolving BC Health Advisories, Worksafe BC and local community objectives.


We have been preparing for months for when the time is right. To that end with the very special community of Kyuquot at the forefront of our minds we have co-developed a community protection plan with the Ka;’yu:’k’t’h’/Che:k’tles7et’h’ First Nations (KCFN). By protecting Kyuquot, its members, its values and its heritage, we are protecting our staff, our guests and our collective future.


This effort was made possible with the heartful and thoughtful collaboration of KCFN, and our neighboring lodge / tourism providers within our home territories. We want to express our gratitude for the ground-breaking efforts and co-operation of everyone in this regard.

As a member of the Kyuquot “Family of Operators” we have committed to the Ka;’yu:’k’t’h’/Che:k’tles7et’h’ First Nations “Community Protection Plan
