Yale First Nation Comprehensive Community Plan and Land Use Plan
EcoPlan worked with Colliers International and Yale First Nation, BC’s newest Treaty First Nation, to develop a Comprehensive Community Plan and supporting Land Use Plan for the Nation’s Treaty Settlement Lands and former reserve areas. Due to funding and Treaty implementation obligations, the project was completed on a tight, seven-month schedule. Despite the timeline, community engagement was central to the project and involved members living on former reserves and in other communities. Facilitation support was provided by Sparrow Grant Consulting, a First-Nation owned and operated facilitation and communications company.
