Over the past two years, the Songhees Nation has been slowly developing a number of tourism initiatives that capitalize on their ancient connection to the land and sea of southern tip of Vancouver Island. The Songhees Wellness Centre in Esquimalt offers a gift shop and cafe. Their catering company also runs a brightly coloured food truck that serves traditional dishes. From the Steamship building on Victoria’s Inner Harbour, they run a variety of canoe, walking and bus tours. Canada is a recognized as a world-leader in Aboriginal Tourism and there is a growing demand for the kinds of experiences offered by the Songhees Nation.
