In 1982, the Tribal Council initiated the formation of the Gitksan Carrier Education Society, now known as the Gitksan Wet’suwet’en Education Society. The Education logog21Society formed for two main reasons: Firstly, Revenue Canada would not grant the Tribal Council non-profit or charitable status because of the political nature. Secondly, the Society, as its initial mandate was to deliver a four-year Native Teacher Education Degree Program in Hazelton with the long term of having half of the teaching positions in Hazelton filled by Gitksan and Wet’suwet’en people by the year 2000. The Gitksan Wet’suwet’en Education Society was incorporated as a non-profit, charitable status society on October 27, 1982; and is also a registered institute with the Private Post Secondary Education Commission of British Columbia.
