Through collaborative decision making and consensus based approaches, our Collaborative Stewardship Forum is facilitating change, allowing new ways of working together for the betterment of our environment and future generations. Working together means just that. All Forum project teams have representatives from the S’ólh Téméxw Stewardship Alliance (STSA), representing 15 Stó:lō First Nations and agencies from the Province of British Columbia. The STSA and BC agencies are the final decision makers who are informed by the following:
