The Lheidli T'enneh people envision a plan to conserve the land and environment as well as promote sustainability in the best interests of the community as a whole.

 

Lands Department

The Lheidli T'enneh First Nation has been operating under the First Nations Land Management Act since the ratification of their Land Code and Individual Transfer Agreement in 2000.

As a signatory to the First Nations Land Management Act the Lheidli T'enneh have opted to take over the management and control of their land and resources, coming out from under the land and resource sections of the Indian Act. This includes the protection and management of the Reserve land environment.

When an Environmental Management Agreement has been negotiated between the First Nation and the Federal Government the Lheidli T'enneh will be able to enact environmental protection laws on their lands. This Environmental Management Framework will outline the operating procedures for the protection and management of the Lheidli T'enneh Reserve land environment.

Strategic Plan

The Lheidli T'enneh Lands Department Strategic Plan: 2009 to 2012 was developed by staff and guided by the vision and direction of the Lands Authority, Chief & Council and most importantly the Community members. There are 12 key focus areas that stem from indentified responsibilities under the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management and the Lheidli T'enneh Land Code.

The priorities were identified through several activities and documents. These activities and documents include: The Lheidli T'enneh Land Code, the Lheidli T'enneh Reserve Land Use Plan, Lands Authority Planning/Visioning sessions and the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management.

The Strategic Plan will be reviewed and updated annually by department staff. The plan will then be presented to the Lands Authority for their review, comments and recommendations. Only after the Lands Authority has given the plan endorsement will it go to Chief & Council for final approval and implementation.
