Within hours of a June 26 Supreme Court of Canada decision confirming aboriginal title of the Tsilhqot’in First Nation, the Tahltan First Nation announced it too planned to launch an aboriginal rights and title claim.
Two clean energy agreements with the Province of B.C. will enable the Tahltan Nation to share revenue from run-of-river projects slated for the Northwest — the McLymont Creek hydroelectric project and the Volcano Creek hydroelectric project.
The Province is investing $555,000 to support the operation and activities of the Tahltan Socio-Cultural Working Group (TSCWG), an award-winning government-to-government forum that aims to address social and cultural challenges that can accompany economic development in remote communities.
