In addition to running its own programming, HGHES offers education and community-based research services to visiting programs on Haida Gwaii.



  • "The Haida Gwaii Semester was truly life changing. I came away with a deeper understanding and appreciation of community, multi-disciplinary collaboration, and traditional knowledge. I made meaningful friendships, felt inspired each and everyday, and really felt I was my best self. The communities on Haida Gwaii deserve just as much, if not more admiration as the natural environment that they are built on. I am incredibly grateful for the experiences that I came away with because of the generosity of those that call Haida Gwaii home.”

  • "Doing the Haida Gwaii Semester is one of the best things I have ever done. For me, it was the perfect place to live and learn. Combining life and learning was quite seamless and happened organically [. . . ] I still aim to return to the islands as soon as I can.”
