Your Voice Our Future

We are the Lheidli T’enneh.

We have been leaders in the effort to have B.C. Aboriginal rights and land title recognized and in 2006, after years of negotiation, a Final Agreement was reached with the governments of Canada and British Columbia, and a Constitution was drafted that would allow the Lheidli T’enneh to govern ourselves.

See what people are asking about the Lheidli T’enneh Final Agreement Decision

  • In the Nisga’a Fiscal Financing Agreement, the Nisga’a negotiated to take over management of their non-insured health benefits (which pays for medication, among other things). The Nisga’a took over management themselves, and there were changes to how their services were managed, believing this to be a better deal for their members. Some Nisga’a members were very critical of these changes as some things that were previously covered were no longer covered.

    The Lheidli T’enneh fiscal financing agreement does not transfer delivery of the non-insured health benefits to Lheidli T’enneh. These benefits remain under the management of Canada and their delegates such as the First Nation Health Authority.

    Therefore, Lheidli T’enneh, will continue to receive the same extended health benefits.
