Conservancies

Conservancies are new protected areas that accommodate Aboriginal Rights and Title and protect natural and cultural values.  Conservancies will be collaboratively managed by both First Nations and the Province.  In conservancies, First Nations can continue traditional practices such as harvesting cedar, hunting and fishing and pursue conservation-based commercial activities such as:

  • Wildlife viewing
  • Guided-fishing
  • Small-scale hydro for local needs
  • Cultural ecotourism
