For the 2017 salmon fishing season, the Skeena First Nations Technical Committee has recommended that all fisheries targeting Skeena sockeye are closed, due to poor forecasted returns. In light of expected low returns of Skeena sockeye in 2017, committee members have collaborated with each other to develop fishing plans for the 2017 Skeena salmon season.

The committee has come to general agreement on tec...hnical recommendations about how First Nations’ Section 35(1) access to Skeena salmon fisheries can be met and prioritized, second to conservation.

Please note that the free Wills and Estates Workshops scheduled for May 24 have been postponed until further notice. A new date will be provided once it has been confirmed.

The Metlakatla Development Corporation has developed an Education, Training and Employment Strategy to prepare and support members in their wellness, education, and employment readiness in order to move into job and career opportunities in and around Metlakatla and Prince Rupert.

This strategy includes the implementation of an Employment Database for Metlakatla members.  So what does this mean for Metlakatla members?  How will the database help Metlakatla members?
