Welcoming Cynthia Kopp: A New Addition to Our Board of Directors

We are thrilled to announce a new addition to our esteemed Board of Directors: Cynthia Kopp. Cynthia brings with her a wealth of experience, a deep commitment to community, and a passion for making a difference in the lives of Indigenous peoples.

Cynthia is a proud member of Tle’tinqox, from Tsilhqot’in on her maternal side, and on her paternal side, she is of German descent. Her connection to Indigenous heritage runs deep, as her two grandchildren are members of Stzuminus First Nation. Born on Salt Spring Island and raised primarily on the Prairies, Cynthia’s journey has taken her across different landscapes, but her heart has always remained in her Indigenous roots.

With over 14 years of experience in Child Protection, Cynthia has dedicated her career to advocating for vulnerable children and families. She has worked tirelessly within The Ministry of Children and Family Development, as well as within Delegated Agencies, striving to create safer and more supportive environments for Indigenous youth and their communities. Before her work in Child Protection, Cynthia spent several years working with high-risk youth and their families, further honing her skills in advocacy and support.

As Cynthia joins our Board of Directors, we are excited to leverage her expertise and insights to further our mission of empowering Indigenous communities and fostering positive change. Her deep understanding of the complexities of Child Protection, coupled with her unwavering commitment to cultural preservation and community empowerment, make her a valuable asset to our organization.

Please join us in welcoming Cynthia Kopp to our Board of Directors. Together, we look forward to continuing our journey of empowerment, advocacy, and positive impact in the lives of Indigenous peoples.
