Stewardship Planning Portal


In 2007 the Stewardship Department of Tŝilhqot’in National Government developed an interactive land and resource “Stewardship Planning Portal”. The Stewardship Portal is a web-based, land-use information management and planning support system. Since 2007 this system has supported and simplified referral filing, review, tracking, and storage for more accessible retrieval and communication with land use proponents over time. The map layers component of the system makes the power of Geographic Information (GIS) accessible and user friendly while assisting with decision making.  

The Portal functions as a repository of all information (spatial data, documents, photos, and communications) regarding referrals and other planning projects. All of this information is accessible online and therefore available in any community with internet access. This reduces paper handling and data entry time. The robust permissions model also limits access to confidential information.

The Portal is a significant step toward empowering Tŝilhqot’in communities to be directly involved in land and resource stewardship.

Stewardship Council

The TSC is a key initiative developed by the Tŝilhqot’in National Government and member communities to increase Tŝilhqot’in involvement in and influence on land and resource management in the Tŝilhqot’in territory. 

To research and report on revenue-sharing (e.g. Forest and Range Agreements/Opportunities) and develop a Tŝilhqot’in Stewardship Planning Framework. 

The TSC does not take away or assume any of the decision-making authority of elected band councils or the Council of Chiefs.

Each community appoints up to two members through a Band Council Resolution. The term of membership is yet to be determined.

Improve communication between the TNG Stewardship Department and various government agencies, TNG Chiefs, and Tŝilhqot’in communities;

Provide guidance to the Stewardship Department staff on how to address referrals and other land and resource management issues affecting their community; and

Develop land and resource management/stewardship policy recommendations for presentation to the Tŝilhqot’in Council of Chiefs and member community government.
