The Nak’azdli Natural Resource department’s primary purpose is to track all outside activity which occurs within our territory and ensure the affected parties are notified.
Our office is the first point of contact for Canada and the Province of British Columbia to fulfill their obligation and duty to gain “free, prior and informed consent” from Nak’azdli Whut’en as determined by the courts for any projects within our territory. Our office receives all referrals from government, forestry, mining, LNG and other interests (i.e. restoration projects) and facilitates the consultation process with keyoh members.
This is important work as cited by the Madell Pinder Lawyers’ Case Summary of the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) Tsilhqot’in vs Canada:
“The S.C.C. warned that if governments do not meet their obligations to justify infringements to Aboriginal Title, and do not act consistent with their fiduciary duties, project approval may be unraveled, and legislation may fall. The message is that governments that don’t justify their actions act at their peril.”
