Terrestrial Cumulative Effects Initiative

BCMF has partnered with The Department of Natural Resources Canada to examine the impact of the TMX project on our member communities, the impact study is one of the accommodation measures available to our communities as part of the TMX project approval.

Short-term project goals

Confirm our member community’s fishing and hunting territories, uncover seasonal movements and yearly harvesting patterns, explore tertiary economic activities and social/cultural movements, and repatriate our networks to the land and resources. This will, as a result, increase our community capacity and have an immediate impact on our ability to engage with government and industry.

Long-term project goals

Equip our communities with self-determining skills and knowledge, in ways that reflect an enhanced understanding of the cumulative effects of industrial development and empower them to participate as partners in the decision-making process that shapes economic development in the province.
