Roasting fish around the fire in British Columbia

The stunning Northern coast of British Columbia can be described as colourful, complex and diverse.

Strong trade links, marine based industry and tourism are a major sources of revenue for this area which in turn generates a desire to maintain the region’s integrity.

“If we are to preserve human values and maintain the health of the eco-system and provide some level of certainty for future generations, then we must communicate with one another”.

The marine eco-system of the British Columbian coastline connects a myriad of natural resources. In this world, nutrients and habitats are shared in a complex web that supports a healthy and resiliant eco-system.

Likewise, the First Nations of British Columbia’s coastline have exchanged their wealth of resources and knowledge, creating a complex, traditional culture and a sustainable economy.

The coastal nations have created a management model where human activities are grounded in values that ensures sustainability.

With such a tremendous diversity of users and uses, the community and cultural well-being of the coastal nations is not just a goal but a reality.
