Meet Victor Rumbolt, the new Administrator for the Tsartlip Band Office. He has asked all community members, if you see him around, to please say hello. He is honoured to be working in the Tsartlip community and thankful for a very warm welcome into W̱SÁNEĆ Territory.
Victor grew up in Stephenville, Newfoundland and completed his undergraduate degrees on the east coast at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia and Memorial University in Newfoundland with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Economics and an international Bachelor of Business Administration.
Upon graduating, Victor moved west to Edmonton in 2008 where he worked with Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada as a Senior/ Field Services Officer for several years and learned about the various programs and services delivered by the Department. Victor then left the Department to work directly for a number of indigenous communities in various capacities including Band Manager, Lands Manager, Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer.
While in Alberta, Victor also continued his studies part-time and in 2017 completed his Master in Business Administration degree from the University of Alberta as well as the Professional Lands Manager Certification Program through the National Aboriginal Lands Managers Association. Victor has recently relocated from the Okanagan to Vancouver Island with his partner and 5-month old daughter, who also happen to be from BC. When Victor isn’t busy working, he enjoys being in the outdoors and staying active. He has asked all community members, if you see him around, to please say hello. He is honoured to be working in the Tsartlip community and thankful for what has been a very warm welcome into W̱SÁNEĆ Territory.
