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.
The membership of the Lheidli T’enneh voted on the Final Agreement and Constitution in 2007. The Constitution was accepted, but the Final Agreement was not.
Before the Final Agreement expires, we will have another opportunity to consider and vote on the Final Agreement negotiated between our nation and the Governments of Canada and British Columbia. This is a time of learning, questioning, listening, and considering. It is a time to understand what is in the Final Agreement, and what it means for our future. It is a time to think carefully and decide – as a unified Lheidli T’enneh Nation – the best path forward for our future.
The last time our people were asked to vote on the Final Agreement, many felt they didn’t have enough information. Not everyone felt they understood the Agreement or had the chance to ask questions. This time, the Lheidli T’enneh Treaty Project Team is working hard to be sure that every Lheidli T’enneh member has access to clear, easy-to-understand, factual information about the Agreement.
