What We Do
Protecting and Advancing Nlaka’pamux Title and Rights
The NNTC works in diverse ways to protect and advance title and rights, from work on the ground such as running the fishery and doing archaeology, research and archival work, to arguing cases in the Supreme Court of Canada.
Consent based decision making and the exercise of jurisdiction are fundamental to the work of NNTC. We engage with proponents seeking to develop projects such as forestry and mining ventures within the Nlaka’pamux Nation to ensure they are consistent with Nlaka’pamux title and rights.
While developing economic well-being and environmental sustainability is core to our work, we are also actively engaged in fire recovery and emergency preparedness and work to protect Nlaka’pamux culture, enhance health and promote child and family well-being.
