Submitted. Abbotsford MLAs Darryl Plecas, Simon Gibson and Mike de Jong are welcoming a multi-year strategic engagement agreement (SEA) with 14 Stó:lō First Nations that will enhance effective consultation and engagement on land and resource management decisions in the Fraser Valley.
The three-year agreement builds on a successful 24-month pilot in which the First Nations and the Province worked together to negotiate and implement a framework agreement to improve relations between the parties. The new agreement will continue to create more effective procedures for administering applications and referrals for the First Nations, government and industry.
The B.C. government is providing a total of $2.1 million over the life of the agreement, which encompasses Stó:lō territory in the Fraser Valley.
