Early Engagement with Proponents
Under the Gitanyow Engagement Framework, between the Gitanyow Nation and Her Majesty the Queen in Right of the Province of British Columbia (as represented by the Skeena Regional Managers Committee), Early Engagement with Proponents is encouraged to allow for the following:
- Education and awareness for Proponents seeking to operate within the Gitanyow Lax’yip (Territory) on the Gitanyow Lax’yip Land Use Plan and Shared Decision Making Framework outlined in the Gitanyow Huwilp Recognition & Reconciliation Agreement.
- Early analysis of proposed development activities and their compliance with the Gitanyow Lax’yip Land Use Plan.
- Opportunity for building long-term relationships based on mutual respect and benefit.
- A streamlined consultation process, significantly decreasing consultation timelines with the Province of British Columbia.
To initiate an Early Engagement process with the Gitanyow Hereditary Chiefs Office, please download and complete the Early Engagement and submit to the Gitanyow Hereditary Chiefs Office.
