Forests are an integral part of the Tsilhqot'in people's livelihood and as such the Nation works to protect our rights and interests within forest resource activities. As changes in the forestry sector are made, the TNG works to keep our communities informed about economic opportunities and protect our Aboriginal rights & title.

The land-based referral process creates opportunities for Tsilhqot'in people to voice concerns and build traditional and cultural values into current projects to ensure preservation and respect.
