What is this engagement about?
The Province of British Columbia and the Tahltan Nation have spent many years developing the Klappan Technical report and the resulting Klappan Plan, in order to address land use and resource management conflicts in the Sacred Headwaters area in northwestern B.C.
Following a robust and comprehensive public engagement process throughout the development of the Klappan Plan, it was approved in principle by the B.C. government in March 2017, with a commitment to a further public feedback period prior to final approval and implementation.
Part of the approval-in-principle was the establishment of the Klappan Management Board, a joint body of B.C. and Tahltan representatives. The Klappan Management Board is seeking your views on priority issues for the plan’s implementation.
Please read the Klappan Plan and Terms of Reference for the Klappan Management Board.
Please email written submissions to IRRInfo@gov.bc.ca. and include input on the following questions:
- What, in your view, are the most important issues the Klappan Management Board should work on in the first year of implementation?
- What types of issues are important to be discussed?
- What is the most effective way to continue to involve the public in management of the Klappan?
Feedback will be accepted until August 1, 2018 at 4p.m.
How can my contribution make a difference?
Priorities for the first year include: Wildlife management and public access, and development of legal and policy measures for Klappan zones. Your input can help.
Ideas and feedback received as written submissions via email will be reviewed by the Klappan Management Board for their consideration in the board’s planning for implementation.
