About

"We're all here to stay." Those were the words of Supreme Court Justice Antonio Lamer in the landmark Delgamuukw court case. We think that if we're indeed all here for the long haul, we need to work together with a view to the future. That's why the heart of SkeenaWild's vision is an improved system of watershed governance, one that goes beyond competing commercial and industrial interests to put wild salmon and the health of future generations front and centre. People living in place, making wise, long-term decisions. We think it's possible.

About Us
