Provide Your Input on Indigenous Community Projects

August 24, 2017; Williams Lake - ISCBC is pleased to announce that we are working with Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) to strengthen the knowledge and awareness of the role Indigenous communities can play in invasive species prevention and management in British Columbia. This project will include a province wide workshop for Indigenous communities and organizations to be held in conjunction with ISCBC’s Annual Forum February 2018 (stay tuned for more information).

The project will support a limited number of community projects and free workshops across the province. For ideas on what a community project might look like please click here. We are requesting that interested First Nations communities contact Jake Archie, Aboriginal Liaison for ISCBC. Jake can then discuss what workshop or project would best suit your needs.
