Purpose



Supporting First Nations to Achieve their Vision

The purpose of the Network is to support First Nation communities to achieve their vision to build and maintain strong and robust Guardian Watchmen programs throughout their territories. 

At the Network, we believe that each Nation has the responsibility and authority to take care of their territories.  The Network supports local Guardian Watchmen programs to establish:

  • A strong and recognizable Guardian Watchmen presence on the coast
  • Credibility with resource users and government agencies
  • Capacity and knowledge to manage and implement community-based Guardian Watchmen programs
  • A regional network of neighbouring Nations working together
