The First Nations Fisheries Legacy Fund was established to ensure a positive and productive collaboration between First Nations, governments, and the private sector to protect, preserve and enhance important environmental areas.  

 

Thanks to a new First Nations Fisheries Legacy Fund, six First Nations — Katzie, Kwantlen, Kwikwetlem, Musqueam, Tsawwassen and Tsleil-Waututh — are now working together in the spirit of Snewylth in close collaboration for the health of aquatic ecosystems of the Lower Fraser River and Burrard Inlet.

 

 
 

Our vision is to be a centre of expertise for the preservation, protection, and restoration of the lands, waters and resources within our Traditional Territories.

 

The First Nations Fisheries Fund is the foundation of a partnership among six First Nations for the conservation and restoration of aquatic ecosystems in their traditional territories. Three areas of focus have been identified:

 
 
Fish

Protecting and enhancing fisheries and other aquatic resources
