We respectfully acknowledge that we conduct our Business on the Unceded Territory of the Hupacasath and Tseshaht First Nations.

We are unapologetic for our support of business and the vital role it plays in building and supporting our incredible community.
Could we ever have imagined in our wildest dreams as recently as January that we'd be telling people to Stay Home. Please Don't Visit. Yet that's what we're now faced with doing to battle this Virus. Every Business Counts. Tourism is key to the BC Economy and to the Economy throughout Vancouver Island. Personally I look forward to a new sign at Chim's Guest House. Let's continue to do the right thing now so that the sign you see today comes down sooner rather than later.
An Emergency Relief Funds Program, offered by Indigenous Tourism BC (ITBC), has been organized to provide emergency relief to market-ready Indigenous tourism businesses. 

ITBC is offering financial grants up to $5,000 per Indigenous tourism business that will address immediate and short-term needs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that has shuttered the 2020 tourism season. These grants will help bridge businesses towards a longer-term recovery plan.
