Coastal First Nations are working to build a conservation-based economy.

One that will protect the ecological values of the Great Bear Rainforest and provide economic health for our communities.


Coastal First Nations communities are working to collaboratively plan for and manage 130 land conservancies in our Territories.

These areas give First Nations the right to continue traditional practices, such as harvesting cedar, hunting and fishing.


Coastal First Nations are working to build self-sufficient communities through sustainable economic development.

This means generating our own sources of revenue so that communities can fund ecosystem-based land and marine management practices to preserve our resources into the future.


In 2009, Coastal First Nations and the Province of British Columbia agreed to one of the largest carbon offset projects in existence.

The Atmospheric Benefits Sharing Agreement gives First Nations on the coast the ownership and right to sell carbon offsets in our Territories.
