Four First Nations on Vancouver Island are moving ahead with clean-energy projects that will reduce greenhouse gases and lead to substantial cost savings for their communities.
Premier John Horgan has issued the following statement to mark National Indigenous Peoples Day:
To ensure a stable, long-term source of revenue for B.C. First Nations, the Province has introduced the gaming control amendment act, which, if passed, will provide B.C. First Nations with 7% of BC Lottery Corporation’s net income for 23 years.
Indigenous groups and local governments are reaching out in their urban communities to have important conversations about reconciliation, supported by a partnership between the Province and the Union of B.C. Municipalities (UBCM).
The We Wai Kai Nation and the Province of British Columbia have signed an Agreement that embraces innovative approaches to modern Treaty negotiations in B.C. and creates early economic development opportunities for the Nation.
