Reconciliation requires a new fiscal relationship with First Nations that supports economic reconciliation, governance capacity, and the judicious sharing of the benefits of land and forest resource development. It`s not about gambling revenue. Forestry plays an important role in bripending the socio-economic divide. The objective of the Joint Solutions Project (JSP) is to reduce conflict, cooperate in the implementation of ecosystem-based management, and cooperate constructively with other stakeholders involved in the implementation of consensual land use agreements for the Central and North Coast regions of British Columbia. The JSP began as a unique effort between a group of forest products producers and environmental groups interested in finding ways to end market-based conflicts over the Great Bear Rainforest forests. In addition to the direct jobs from Pacheedaht`s forestry initiatives, a whole series of other jobs are linked to the increase in activity. Where there are deforestation operations, there is a need for planning and layout of cutting blocks, wooden cruises, management of cutting blocks and tree plantings, to name a few. One of the nation`s obstacles is to have enough of its locals, trained to fill the positions and help build their resources. Tom Jones is optimistic that more Pacheedaht will return to the region if forestry and other businesses expand and the nation prospers. Indigintism is the collective economic response to the enduring heritage of the systemic exclusion of Indigenous peoples in the development of natural resources in Canada. It is the correction of this truth that will support the implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and Law 41. In November 2019, with the adoption of Bill 41, it must do so. C Federal Government prepare and implement an action plan to achieve the objectives set out in the UNDRIP.

In order to create a collective pathway forward, steps are needed to meaningfully change the forest revenue sharing model to share equitably with First Nations the benefits of forest lands and resources. As of December 2010, 171 First Nations had access to the 54.6 million cubic metres of harvest through all direct allocation agreements and received a $US 242 million stake in revenue. Revenue sharing with First Nations should be proportional to the value of timber harvested in their respective territories, rather than calculated on a per capita basis. Recent innovations aimed at the province to increase the meaningful participation of First Nation communities in the forest sector were the result of the Working Roundtable on Forestry. . . .
