With Thrive since 2021
Joe Cardle became part of our Board of Directors in April of 2021. He is a retired school principal with thirty-four years experience as an educator. Joe’s past community board experiences include the CRD Traffic Safety Commission and National Little League. His administrative leadership, while at Burnside Elementary Community School, connected him with Burnside Gorge Community Centre and various other agencies forging a collaborative effort to support children and families. As a school administrator, he worked in partnership with private corporations, government and church organizations to assist families in need. Joe feels most fortunate to have the board trusting in his knowledge, skills and experience related to serving people in our community.
Our Thrive team acknowledges that our agency stands and works on the unceded Lək̓ʷəŋən territory of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. We also acknowledge the five W̱SÁNEĆ communities: W̱JOȽEȽP (Tsartlip), BOḰEĆEN (Pauquachin), SȾÁUTW̱,(Tsawout) W̱SIKEM (Tseycum) and MÁLEXEȽ (Malahat), as well as the Sc'ianew (Beecher Bay), T’Sou-ke, and Pacheedaht Nations and the Spune’laxutth’ (Penelekut) tribe where our work extends. We are committed to acknowledging our relationship with these unceded lands and communities, at staff and Board meetings, and during our hosted events. We encourage the evolving learning and awareness of our staff, Board, and the Thrive community, discovering and striving for meaning and personal connection within each acknowledgement.Statement of Reconciliation
