About The Coastal First Nations Great Bear Initiative
The Coastal First Nations Great Bear Initiative promotes community self-sufficiency and sustainable economic development on BC’s North and Central Coast and Haida Gwaii. Our communities are working together to build a strong, conservation-based economy that recognizes our Title and Rights, and protects our culture and ecosystems. We support: planning for marine and land resources in the Great Bear region, increased local control and management of forestry and fisheries, sustainable development through ecosystem-based management, capacity building in our communities, partnerships with government, industry, environmental groups and others. The Great Bear Initiative Society operates under the direction of a Board of Directors that approves an annual strategic plan for the organization. It has one representative from each of the nine member Nations.
RAVEN is a registered charity with a mission to raise funds for Indigenous People's access to justice. Guided by some of the most brilliant legal advisors in the country, RAVEN works to enshrine environmental justice for all. The law is clearly on the side of Indigenous Peoples: your contributions allow us to provide First Nations with reliable, long term support so they can defend their legal rights within a thriving natural habitat.
