The role of the Natural Resource Department oversees the stewardship of our resources, supporting the Title and Rights Strategy, and contributing to Traditional Resource.

Our primary function is to protect and manage resources within ‘Namgis territory, but outside of Indian Reserves on Cormorant Island.

The department has been involved in the planning and harvest of cutblocks Over the past year, we began an involved process with Western Forest Products that has allowed us unprecedented access to the planning and harvest of cutblocks within ‘Namgis territory.

In managing the protection of the flora and fauna across the ‘Namgis territory, the Department keeps the focus on the long term sustainability of all forestry, fishing and other wildlife resources for the benefit of the future generations.
