Outlook 2020: First Nations economic reconciliation to continue

Share

Canada’s First Nations have been playing in an unequal playing field for a long time, writes Haisla Chief Councillor Crystal Smith, who says that in this last decade, “the Haisla Nation finally did get a share and a say.”

Writing for Business in Vancouver, Smith points to LNG Canada as an example of this in action. “As part of the $40 billion LNG Canada project, we negotiated agreements that allowed us to protect our environment in a way that is based on our input, priorities, and needs. The agreements also gave us the ability to invest in programs we believe can help empower this generation of Haisla and those who follow us.”
