Meet Clint Murdaugh

Clint Murdaugh is the owner of The Secret Place

Clint Murdaugh has always had an entrepreneurial spirit. Even at the young age of five, Clint was known to sell unique rocks from his wagon by going door-to-door. Fast-forward a few years and The Secret Place owner has advanced to a more mature business approach. Clint has truly enjoyed every step of the entrepreneurial process, from building his plan to renovating the cabin with his own bare hands, he is proud of everything he has accomplished. “I love being able to share this legacy with others,” beams Clint.

Like most residents of Haida Gwaii, Clint is particularly fond of fishing and boating. He has invested his whole life in his community, feeling compelled to give a little back. Clint created and operated the non-profit ministry group ‘24/7 Youth Haida Gwaii’ as a means to connect the region’s younger populations. The program saw great success and continues to support many residents today. Clint says that many people in Haida Gwaii get involved with the community- it’s what makes it such a great place to live! Plus it’s the salmon fishing capital in all of Canada!

“We love Haida Gwaii, and there’s a little Haida Gwaii in all of us!”
