Elders work with students, staff, and faculty as part of the SFU community in the following ways:
- Provide guidance, support, and mentorship to ISC students
- Guide traditional ceremonial activities
- Support special events
- Participate in interviews, guest lectures, and committees
If you would like to invite an Elder to support your event, please review the Protocol Guide and submit a request at least two weeks before the event date.
$200: Up to one hour
$300: More than 1 hour but not exceeding 2 hours
$400: Half day or less (maximum 4 hours)
$800: One day (maximum 7 hours)
To ensure the comfort and safety of Elders while attending in-person events, we are asking that event organizers coordinate and cover the cost of transportation (i.e. taxi, Uber) to and from the event, as well as provide refreshments (i.e. snack and/or lunch) as required.
