Located on Vancouver Island’s east coast, the City of Nanaimo and Snuneymuxw First Nation are committed to moving forward with reconciliation as the shared objective. Recognition of the Snuneymuxw Treaty of 1854 with the Crown is essential to generating the change that both governments seek. In order to do this, government-to-government agreements have been used to develop a strong working relationship and coordinate decision-making for the betterment of the Nanaimo region. In May of 2019, the City of Nanaimo and Snuneymuxw First Nation renewed their Protocol Agreement – a framework to implement reconciliation including a collaborative process for working together – revising the original protocol agreement to include fundamental and critical steps to achieve a shared vision for Nanaimo that promotes prosperity for all.
