Cardiff Mountain Ecological Reserve
On June 26, 2014, the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) granted the Tsilhqot’in Nation a declaration of aboriginal title. Aboriginal title includes the right to exclusive use and occupation of the land, as well as the ability to determine the uses to which the land will be put.
The map to the right shows the land that is subject to the declaration of aboriginal title. The Province is currently analyzing the SCC’s decision, and is in dialogue with the Tsilhqot’in Nation about access to Tsilhqot’in title land.
Until further notice, persons interested in access to the Title area for camping and associated recreational activities are encouraged to contact the Tsilhqot’in National Government (http://www.tsilhqotin.ca/index.htm).
Ecological Reserves are areas in British Columbia selected to preserve representative and special natural ecosystems, plant and animal species, features, and phenomena. Ecological Reserves provide the highest level of protection for the maintenance of physical and biological diversity while allowing for research and educational activities.
