  • The Agreement allows for rules to be set regarding animals that need protection. For these animals, the Lheidli T’enneh will negotiate, with the Government of British Columbia, the number of animals we are allowed to harvest. Together we will develop a wildlife harvest plan that will set out the rules. Grizzly bears and mountain caribou are the only species that would require a wildlife harvest plan at this time.

  • The federal mandate related to the Final Agreement is expected to expire in October 2016. After this, the Final Agreement will no longer be an option for Lheidli T’enneh.
