“With Dekker Hewett Group’s generous donations, $200,000 in a collective effort were raised for the kids of Musqueam Nation. Some of the things this fund helped with were course fees, uniform costs, school/course supplies, educational assessment fees, shortfall in tuition fees, reasonable travel fees and expenses associated with attending educational related events.”

More about the Chief Ernie Campbell Memorial Fund:

The Chief Ernie Campbell Memorial Fund, was founded in 2017 by Chief Wayne Sparrow to honour the late Chief Campbell, and to help better serve members of the proud and great Musqueam First Nation. While the mission is to help serve the Musqueam People.


Ernie Campbell served as Chief of the Musqueam Nation for many years, first elected in the 1980s and retiring in 2012. He was widely known as a fierce advocate for the Musqueam People, a visionary leader and a tough negotiator who led many successful initiatives on behalf of the Band. Equally important, Chief Campbell believed in the immense power of sport and education to make people’s lives better, to teach important lessons, and to connect community. He also valued the Musqueam culture and heritage, believing that no one else defines who they are.
