Heritage, Lands and Natural Resources

The HLNR Department represents the 'spiritual' portion of the medicine wheel. This Department is responsible for monitoring, protecting, and responsibly managing all C/TFN lands, habitats, fish, wildlife, and culture for present and future generations.

Environmental monitors patrol the traditional territory and respond to request or enquiries about activities on settlement land and traditional territory in Yukon and British Columbia. The staff is always working toward improving land management through the use of legislation, policies, leasing, mapping, and land use planning. All requests - including spot land applications, agricultural developments, lease applications, mining and exploration requests, water, forestry, and land use - go to the Land Use Team for recommendations, comments, or actions.

The HLNR Department also fosters traditional activities by operating a language program, as well as carving, artist support, and many other activities.
