What is this engagement about?
In October 2018, shíshálh Nation and the B.C. government signed the shíshálh-B.C. Foundation Agreement. The Foundation Agreement provides direction for the development of a joint shíshálh-B.C. Land Use Plan for the public lands in the swiya: the lands and waters that shíshálh Nation has occupied and used since time immemorial. The shíshálh-B.C. Land Use Plan will provide clear management direction on biodiversity, watershed integrity, resources important to shíshálh culture, and sustainable economic development.
From December 11, 2020 to January 31, 2021, we invite the public to complete a questionnaire. This questionnaire will help the shíshálh-B.C. Land Use Planning Table understand early interests, opportunities, and concerns as they relate to the planning process and our initial planning themes.
Feedback will be accepted until January 31, 2021 at 4pm (PST).
How will my contribution make a difference?
The results of this questionnaire, along with the results of initial stakeholder workshops, will be summarized in a What We Heard Report which will be available on this project website.
