Our Learning Centre

The Ts'zil Learning Centre is an Aboriginal Post-Secondary Institute and member of the Indigenous Adult Higher Learning Association servicing the Lil'wat Nation, Mount Currie, and Pemberton Region.  The Lil'wat Nation is a progressive First Nation community of over 2,000 Members located in the peaceful agricultural valley just 30 minutes north of Whistler.  

The Ts'zil Learning Centre is also a satellite campus of Capilano University, our main post-secondary partner.  

The name Ts'zil comes from the Ucmalmicwts word for the majestic mountain that provides the valley with its stunning backdrop.

The Centre delivers fully accredited and transferable college and university courses through our partnership with Capilano University and other post-secondary partners.  We embrace and integrate Lil'wat Culture and Language throughout all areas of programming.    

Ts'zil  provides a wide range of programs and support in the areas of Literacy, Upgrading, Skills Training, Career Training, Trades, Business, University & College Preparation, University Transfer, Lil'wat Language & Culture, and muc more.  Our approach is student centered, holistic and supportive.   Class sizes are small, while instructors are easily accessible.
