Pathways to Collaboration

Northern St’át’imc – District of Lillooet – Squamish Lillooet Regional District

Pathway Overview

The District of Lillooet and Electoral Areas A and B of the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) are located within the territory of the northern St’át’imc communities of Sekw’el’wás, T’ít’q’et, Tsal’alh, Ts’kw’aylaxw, Xáxli’p and Xwísten. Recognizing that this region’s economic development services had historically been uncoordinated and under- resourced, conversations about how to better collaborate began in the early 2000s.

A 2008 joint study identified economic development opportunities that could be implemented to benefit the broader area and help facilitate local economic collaboration among local area governments and Northern St’át’imc communities. In 2014, funding became available to explore how the governments and communities could work together to strengthen economic development.
