About Us

Etu Pasifika Limited was opened in October 2016 as a response to the needs of the Pacific community in Canterbury. Etu Pasifika started with 12 full time staff members and today, the organisation has close to 34 staff members who are serving more than 7,500 Pacific Cantabrians in the region.
Etu - “Our Guiding Stars”
Etu is Cook Islands Māori for ‘Star’. The stars were used by our ancestors to navigate the biggest ocean in the world at night where they discovered new horizons, new beginnings and new civilisations. The five stars also represent the five wounds of Christ’s suffering. This combined symbolism is a constant reminder to the Etu Pasifika team that even in times of crisis and uncertainty, we will be faithful to our core values that will allow us to rise above the challenges and with the families we serve, navigate to a brighter and better future together.
