The significance of UFV's coat of arms 

You will notice that many of your Convocation materials feature UFV's coat of arms. The coat of arms includes symbols of Stó:lō Indigenous culture, local wildlife, and elements of the Fraser Valley landscape. The featured motto, “IYAQAWTXW,” is in the Halq’eméylem language of the Stó:lō and means “house of transformation,” reflecting UFV’s mandate as a place of change — of intellectual and character transformation.
