News and Information


The Stó:lō Nation is the political amalgamation of eleven Stó:lō communities. The Stó:lō Service Agency (SSA) is the service delivery arm of Stó:lō Nation. SSA provides services to the Stó:lō and Aboriginal communities throughout S'olh Temexw.

S'olh Temexw is the traditional territory of the Stó:lō people.  According to our swxoxwiyam, we have lived here since time immemorial.  The Stó:lō traditional territory extends from Yale to Langley, BC. 

The SSA aims to ensure social and economic development within the Stó:lō community through services and programs in the areas of education, human resource development, early childhood education services such as daycare, headstart and family support, elderly care, social development, health services, a dental office, tourism, and land and research and resource management services.



Leslee Picton is the Service Navigator for Stó:lō Service Agency. She is available by appointment to anyone seeking information about available programs and services through Stó:lō or that are otherwise offered in Chilliwack. 

 In her role, Leslee will assist community members in identifying their immediate, short- and long-term needs. She will then refer individuals to the service that will address the most immediate concern or need. She will also offer further assistance, as necessary, as a person accesses supports, either at Stó:lō or by connecting them with the most appropriate local community service.

Leslee works with new clients, returning clients and those who are simply unsure or unaware of the services available and what will most suit them. If Stó:lō does not have the needed service or if the person asking is ineligible for a Stó:lō service (e.g. not all services are funded to be available to non-First Nations people), Leslee will make referrals to other service providers in the Chilliwack area.

For more information or to make an appointment with Leslee, please call 604 824-3200 or toll free 1-877-411-3200
