Tla’amin Nation, one of five Coast Salish Nations whose traditional territories cover the Sunshine Coast Timber Supply Area, are currently collaborating on a Forest Landscape Planning Pilot project with the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development. The intent of this project is to provide working examples of Government-to-Government partnerships around the management of forests that will inform changes to Provincial Forestry regulation. As a multi-party planning process looking at long-term sustainability of our forests, the forest planning team includes Provincial, First Nations and Forest Licensee staff with ongoing input from local communities and stakeholders. The project is one example of how we are exercising and advancing our governance interests as a Treaty Nation. The pilot project is beginning its second year of a three-year term.  2023 is the target of the newly developed Forest Landscape Planning regulations coming into effect.
