Tsimshian First Nations Treaty Society
The Tsimshian First Nations Treaty Society is comprised of five Tsimshian First Nations in northwest British Columbia — Kitselas, Gitga’at, Kitsumkalum, Metlakatla, Kitasoo/Xaixais – that are currently working to achieve treaty agreements with Canada and British Columbia under the BC Treaty Commission process.
The TFN Treaty Society Negotiators along with Negotiators for Canada and British Columbia generally meet on a monthly basis. Between negotiation meetings, the Tsimshian First Nations review meetings results, continue background research and plan for the next round of discussions.
The Tsimshian First Nations Treaty Society represents both Kitsumkalum and Kitselas First Nations at the negotiation table, as both Nations are in Stage Five of the treaty process. While both Nations are negotiating their own Final Agreements, the Nations and treaty teams work closely together.
