First Nations Land Trust

The First Nations Land Trust was formally established in January 2006 as a registered non-profit society in the Province of British Columbia. The Board of Directors are Indigenous people who share a concern for the endangered habitat and threatened species who live upon or around it.
The intent of creating the society is to preserve, protect and enhance the quality of the human and natural environment as well as promoting land stewardship and natural habitat for present and future generations. In addition, the purposes include all items incidental towards promoting the natural habitat and land stewardship objectives.

One of the main objectives is to develop a new methodology of protecting existing endangered habitat by placing it in trust for future generations. The unique legal status of First Nations’ land enables inimitable solutions to be created in order to protect these endangered areas.

First Nations’ people, through the vehicle of the First Nations Land Trust, now have a greater opportunity to enhance their existing knowledge of environmental habitat and conservation. The First Nations Land Trust vehicle also provides a neutral entity to enable educating environmental concerns to the greater populace. As well, the First Nations Land Trust enables First Nations to better protect both endangered species and preserve land by local enhancement of traditional cultural expertise, knowledge and resources.
Working with various governments as well as non-profit organizations, corporate entities and private citizens will make the ability of this long-term development possible as the primary driving force behind establishing a viable method to protect endangered species habitat.
