Our Location

Innovating in the heart of Haida Gwaii

Working together

At X̱aayda Hub, our space is informed by the place we are blessed to call home: Haida Gwaii, the Galapagos of the North, islands as rich with culture as they are in biodiversity.

The Space

The Space

Ocean. Beaches. Endless sky. This is the view from Xaayda Hub, and the elements we were influenced by in creating the space. Our expansive windows offer an uninterrupted view of the coastline, and allow plenty of natural light to pour in. Each desk is hand-crafted from local cedar, and our walls feature art from up and coming local artists. At Xaayda Hub, we want you to be inspired by your surroundings.

The Village

The Village

The Hub is located in the heart of Skidegate, known for its’ thriving Haida language revitalization program. We are fortunate to have the Skidegate Haida Immersion Program right across the street, enabling us to learn from and share with the elders there. Learning from our history and valuing Haida teachings are an integral part of who we are.

What is Coworking?

Its so cool, everybody's doing it.

We provide the physical infrastructure: desks, communal areas, lounge spaces, internet, coffee. You do the rest: come together, collaborate, share knowledge, and develop innovative solutions to our most pressing problems.

At its most basic, coworking is the belief that working together is better than working apart. In the natural world, interactions between organisms are strengthened when they are interdependent.

On Haida Gwaii, spawning salmon fertilize riverbanks, and rotting wood nourishes new growth. Here at X̱aayda Hub we’ve learned from these relationships and strive to mimic the same sense of collaboration in our space.

We recognize the wealth of talent that exists in different fields, and we believe that by bringing people from diverse backgrounds together we can accomplish more than we could if we each worked in isolation.
