Oct. 5, 2018 – The B.C. government has signed an agreement with the shíshálh Nation (previously known as the Sechelt First Nation), establishing a relationship and shared decision-making structures focused on economic development and environmental protection.

The shíshálh will receive $36 million for three parcels of Crown land for cultural and economic use, including forestry and gravel mining.
