Stó:lō Research and Resource Management Centre with the backing of the STSA and several other First Nations organizations have been awarded the opportunity to negotiate the Province’s first HCA Section 4 Agreement as a pilot project established through the Joint Working Group on First Nations Heritage Conservation. As part of this project, the Stó:lō Strategic Engagement Agreement Working Group on Heritage Conservation assisted in aspects of potential S4 Heritage site review. Following anticipated completion in 2019, the pilot will be implemented over the course of one year with resulting recommendations potentially serving to extend the term of the agreement.
