Katzie First Nation Votes YES to their Community Land Code
Congratulations to Katzie First Nation! On March 29, 2017, Katzie First Nation eligible voters ratified their community land code, and in doing so, opted out of 34 limiting, land-related sections of the Indian Act. Their land code is a vital step towards cultural and economic self-sufficiency for the community, and the environmental protection and proper governance of their lands. Katzie First Nation is the 71st First Nation to become operational under the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management and now assumes land governance jurisdiction over their reserve lands and resources.
