MDTC BCCI 2012/2013

We were successful in applying for the BC Capacity Initiative (BCCI) and will have a joint DFN/KHFN project starting July 2nd, 2012 and running until March 31st, 2013.

This project has created a MDTC Lands and Resource Department which will serve as the vehicle through which the bands regionally respond to referrals, pursue land and marine resource planning, management and resource-based economic development activities through setting up an office, staff training and policy development.

This project addresses the financial and human resource capacity strain of keeping individual band’s Lands and Resource Departments open and operating. This is an ongoing issue that will only partially address the issue as funding runs out as of March 31st.

The Gwawaenuk were also successful in applying for a BCCI project that will be complementary to this one and work alongside this project.
