Our Home on Native Land - Burrard Inlet

CPAC’s Ed Watson provides an in-depth look at one of this country's wealthiest First Nations Reserves, the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, commonly known as Burrard Inlet, in British Columbia.

Located on the outskirts of Vancouver, this community has been very successful in developing up-scale condominiums and building prestigious golf courses that have become profitable sources of revenue for the reserve.

Prosperity has also brought its share of problems to Burrard Inlet, but the community is determined to solve them in their own traditional ways.

Ed also speaks with residents about day-to-day life on the reserve. Among those interviewed are Justin George (a councillor), Leah George-Wilson (the chief of the Tseil-Waututh Nation), and Andrew Van Eden (a community justice co-ordinator).

This documentary series takes viewers inside five diverse Native communities across the country for an intimate look at what’s shaping, challenging, improving, and impeding life among Canada’s Native population.
