Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw Tribal Council Executive Director

Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw Tribal Council Executive Director

Before coming to NVIATS, Joy lived for 26 years in Kingcome Inlet, BC. Arriving in Campbell River looking for a place to call home and hoping to find full time work was rough for about the first 3 months. Even after finding work she had to commute from Comox each day for two months, making for an extremely long work day.

Joy applied for a NVIATS sponsored job training program as a Bookkeeper for the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw Tribal Council and got it. She discovered that she liked bookkeeping and she was really good at it. What is life like now? Joy says “BUSY”. She works for two organizations, the MDTC and the MDTC Fisheries. Joy has been appointed the interim Executive Director for the MDTC and has found a permanent, challenging but satisfying career.

Joy thinks everyone who is looking for a career, help finding work, or advice on a training program should come to NVIATS. She always shares our posts on Facebook and resends our newsletter to several people. She says the information that NVIATS provides and the assistance they can give is invaluable. She has seen other success stories from fellow community members that have been helped by NVIATS and she is very happy about that as well.
