Sustainable Economic Development & Fiscal Relations Strategy

 

Regional Sessions on Sustainable Economic Development

Background

The Regional Economic Development Sessions allow for leadership and expert involvement in developing regionally based economic strategic documents as the foundation for a larger provincial framework that encourages and enhances the economic investment and progress in First Nation territories.

The first round of Regional Sessions took place in Spring 2016, and visited (5) regions: Fraser Salish Region (Chilliwack), Vancouver Coastal Region (North Vancouver), Interior Region (Enderby), Vancouver Island (Parksville), and Northern Region (Prince George).

In the second round of regional sessions, BCAFN visited (8) economic development regions: Kootenay (Cranbrook), Lower Mainland-Southwest (Tsawwassen), Northeast (Fort St. John), Nechako (Moricetown), Cariboo (Williams Lake), Thompson-Okanagan (Osoyoos), North Coast (Skidegate), and Vancouver Island-Coast (North Saanich).
