Evangeline Clifton began Vancouver Island University’s (VIU) bachelor of tourism management program in September 2016. But it was the Aboriginal Ecotourism Training Program, delivered in partnership between VIU, North Island College, and the Heiltsuk Tribal Council, that introduced her to the field.
Now not only is Evangeline working to complete her degree, the wife and mother of five is involved in VIU’s ‘Su’luqwq’a Community Cousins Program. She is also part of a team involved with the Aboriginal Tourism Conference, which is taking place at VIU on April 11-13, 2017.
