Conservancies are lands set aside for:
(a) the protection and maintenance of their biological diversity and natural environments;
(b) the preservation and maintenance of social, ceremonial and cultural uses of First Nations;
(c) the protection and maintenance of their recreational values; and
(d) development or use of natural resources in a manner consistent with the purposes of (a), (b) and (c) above.
The conservancy designation explicitly recognizes the importance of these areas to First Nations for social, ceremonial and cultural uses. Metlakatla participates in joint-management with BC Parks of conservancies within our territory
