Travel to one of Canada’s wildest places and experience cultural ecotourism like never before when you stay at the Haida House at Tllaal and explore the rugged archipelago of Haida Gwaii off B.C.’s northwest coast. Spend time with cultural ambassadors and nature enthusiasts — Haida people eager to share their venerable yet modern culture with you. Let them escort you into a magical world inhabited by whales, eagles, ravens and black bears.
“Haida House is part of the Haida Enterprise Corp. which is owned by the Haida people and the Haida Nation. The company is designed to create meaningful employment of Haida citizens and non-Haida people who live on Haida Gwaii,” says marketing manager Dana Schoahs. “Our mandate is to attain financial independence while improving the lives of the citizens who live here.”
Along with Haida House, the company is poised to launch Ocean House at Stads K’uns GawGa in 2018. Modelled after the Haida House, it will be a floating experiential lodge, based on the west coast of Haida Gwaii.
Haida Enterprise Corp. also owns Westcoast Resorts and a fishing and processing operation called Haida Wild Seafoods. “Our seafood comes from the most pristine waters in B.C. One of our signature products is razor clams that can only be commercially fished and gathered by the Haida,” says Schoahs. “My favourite product is our smoked sable fish. It’s so good!”
