shishalh Nation, BC – On Wednesday, August 10, 2022, shishalh Nation (shishalh) and Interfor Corporation (Interfor) took another critical step in advancing their economic relationship and supporting the economic vision of the shishalh Nation. In 2017, shishalh and Interfor fundamentally transformed their work together through a new Relationship Agreement which set out a path for shared decision-making and economic development. Shishalh Nation also set the goal of furthering economic development through the forest sector and being the largest forestry tenure holder. Shishalh made this goal clear, and we began the work of transforming our relationship in light of this goal. Today, we are deepening our relationship and making a drastic step in achieving shishalh’s desires through the purchase of 100,000m3 of annual volume from Interfor. The purchase is being supported through funds provided by the Province of British Columbia through the Foundation Agreement.
