Today, Musqueam released a Community COVID-19 Report with information on emergency response efforts in the first four months of the pandemic, as well as resources for members who need COVID-19-related support.
The highest priority for MIB Council and Administration is ensuring all Musqueam members and their families are safe, healthy and supported during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Musqueam has shown a shared motivation to come together, take care of each other and keep COVID-19 out of our community.
Thank you for your ongoing patience while following public health guidelines. COVID-19 has been emotionally and financially difficult for many people.
We all just need to do our best and act responsibly for the sake of our community.

Breakdown of the budget, expenditures and funding sources
There have been many unexpected pandemic expenses and emergency funds made available. MIB has received $922,315 from the federal government and private donations to support the emergency response to COVID-19. This update follows the March 25 notice regarding MIB accessing emergency funding, and explains how MIB plans to spend the funding and where funds have already been spent.
Summary of key themes and survey statistics
At the beginning of June, MIB conducted a community survey to determine membership concerns and personal circumstances. There were 108 responses to the survey from members living at and away from home. The results of this survey inform how MIB leadership and the COVID-19 Task Force will allocate resources.
Includes a list of key MIB department contacts
Results from the survey indicate that members do not feel informed about what resources are available to support the Musqueam community. To provide this information in one spot, we have created a comprehensive list of key departments, services available, and direct contact information for staff.
