Pathways to Collaboration

Kitselas Firat Nation – City of Terrace

Pathway Overview

Kitselas First Nation is located a 15-minute drive east of the City of Terrace, along the Skeena River in the North Coast region of BC. Economic development progress between the two communities has been progressing since 2006 when they signed an Accord of Recognition and Respect and a Framework for Cooperation. Kitsumkalum First Nation, which is located just west of Terrace, was also party to this agreement. Terrace and Kitselas broadened their partnership with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the securing of 2,200 acres of Provincial Airport Option Lands in 2007. Subsequent agreements were signed in 2008 and 2011, and in 2014, the Kitselas Development Corporation purchased 172 acres of the Skeena Industrial Development Park. Alongside regional employment benefits, the City of Terrace and Kitselas now benefit from shared industrial development and tax revenues as a result of this partnership work.
