We love sharing inspiring stories! To assist everyone on their journeys to reconciliation and sustainability, the Realizing UNDRIP Initiative brings forward examples of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people working together in a good way, including initiatives that reflect innovative collaboration. Here are just a few recent examples.
In 2011, BC sought Stó:lō support to transfer 60 hectares to Mission. LMS Society and Mission's plan: 50 hectares for a city park, a 99-year land lease, and joint park management, with over 12 hectares for LMS economic opportunities.
Over 30 Indigenous communities and Tribal Councils worked with federal and provincial government agencies in a race against time to save hundreds of thousands of returning salmon and protect future runs.
A journey that began with conflict transformed into one of BC’s first Community Accords, between the Tla’amin Nation and the City of Powell River. The Community Accord features strong, respectful partnerships between elected leaders and staff.
