The Alliance of BC Modern Treaty Nations works together to advance and advocate for areas of shared interest relating to the implementation of modern treaties in British Columbia. Membership includes each of the eight Modern Treaty Nations in BC.
The Alliance was established for Modern Treaty Nations in BC to collectively engage at the provincial level. While a Canada-wide coalition of modern treaty indigenous governments and organizations (the Land Claims Agreement Coalition) already exists to advocate for improved treaty implementation at the federal level, modern treaty nations in BC needed an avenue to collectively engage at the provincial level.
The Alliance works on a wide range of issues requiring joint action, including:
- prioritizing appropriate fiscal arrangements,
- emphasizing the constitutional nature of our treaty rights, and
- improving our government-to-government relationship.
