Tsawwassen First Nation

The Tsawwassen First Nation Final Agreement took effect on April 3, 2009. Tsawwassen First Nation, Canada, and British Columbia are nine years into the implementation of their new relationship.

Tsawwassen traditional territory is in the Lower Mainland, from the watersheds that feed into Pitt Lake to Burns Bog to the Salish Sea, including Saltspring, Pender, and Saturna Islands. There are approximately 365 Tsawwassen citizens.

Tsawwassen has overlapping and/or shared territory with its First Nation neighbours: Cowichan Tribe, Hwlitsum, Katzie, Musqueam, Stó:lō, Tsleil-Waututh, and Semiahmoo.
