Snuneymuxw Territory (Nanaimo, B.C.) – We are hosting a First Nations Forestry Forum in Kamloops on November 22-23rd, 2022. The BC First Nations Forestry Council is working with BC’s Ministry of Forests to deliver this engagement opportunity for interested First Nations and Indigenous forestry businesses. The Forum is intended to complement, not replace, ongoing engagement between First Nations and BC on key forest sector policies by providing a space for technical discussions on a range of forestry and forest stewardship initiatives and issues of interest to Indigenous communities. Held on Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc territory, this two-day Forum will include opportunities for First Nations and Indigenous forestry businesses to engage on key forest sector policies. Day 1 will be focused on Forest Sector Transformation, including the sessions on the New Fiscal Framework and forestry revenue sharing and tenure. Day 2 will focus on Forest Stewardship and include sessions on cultural and prescribed fire, forest landscape planning and the old growth strategic review.
