The Future of TWN Lands

Tsleil-Waututh Nation Community Land Use Planning

Join the conversation about the future of Tsleil-Waututh Reserve land!

Over the next two years, we will be asking TWN members to share their thoughts, ideas, and values about how the lands of sʔəθnəc (a.k.a. Burrard Inlet IR#3) should be used in the future. This will involve topics like:

                    Traditional and cultural land uses (e.g. food gathering, ceremony)

                    Land for economic development (e.g. development of more market housing, offices, etc.)

                    Future needs for additional community housing

                    Different types of land tenure (e.g. traditional family holdings, CPs, Band land, etc.)

                    Environmental Protection (e.g. creek and shoreline restoration)

                    Recreation (e.g. sports field)

                    Transportation, access and privacy (e.g. Who should have access to which areas of the Reserve?)

TWN members are invited to share their thoughts and ideas at community meetings, through surveys and online.Please see below for upcoming events, updates, and other opportunities to participate. Regular updates on the process will be posted here, as well as the TWN Land Use Planning facebook group, and in the Takaya Talks newsletter. TWN’s Land Use Planning process is led by a diverse Working Group of 17 TWN members: Margaret R. George , Debbie Sisson, Dan Herrick, Cody LaRock, Gordon Dick, Amanda George-Thomas, Roderick Louis, Christine George, Heidi Martin, Leah George-Wilson, Mike O'Neill, Vanessa Gonzalez, John Sisson, Cassandra Smith, Michelle P. George, Debbie George, Liana Martin (Council Rep).

This project is made possible with funding from the RealEstate Foundation of British Columbia and the New Relationship Trust.
