XʷMƏΘKʷƏY̓ƏM (MUSQUEAM), SḴWX̱WÚ7MESH (SQUAMISH) AND SƏL̓ILWƏTAʔɬ/SEL̓ÍLWITULH (TSLEIL-WAUTUTH) TERRITORIES /VANCOUVER – British Columbia’s cabinet ministers and First Nations’ leadership kicked off the annual B.C. Cabinet and First Nations Leaders’ Gathering on the heels of historic progress that significantly advances reconciliation in B.C.

In just one year, the Province and the First Nations Leadership Council (FNLC) have worked together to deliver on promises to share provincial gaming revenues and introduce legislation that enshrines the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UN Declaration) in provincial law.

Together, these are tangible examples of how the Province and the FNLC are working collaboratively to strengthen government-to-government relationships with First Nations and make a significant difference in the lives of Indigenous peoples in B.C.
