Regional Wildlife Management Process
A number of pilot Regional Wildlife Management
Processes are underway in the province, involving First Nations
and other stakeholders in the management of wildlife resources,
largely aimed at the consumptive side of the equation. In the
Omineca, the Regional Wildlife Management
Processes began as a treaty-related measure stemming
from treaty negotiations with the Lheidli T’enneh. Much
of the initial work on this process was completed over two years
ago, in 2002, and the process is now being revived and resurrected
in light of the pace towards completion that treaty negotiations
have taken of late. Stakeholders are now being canvassed and
queried as to their interests in the process, and their representation.
Other groups that have traditionally been allies and stakeholders
in the process of wildlife allocation and management will be
rolled into this overarching process as it develops.
