Chawathil First Nation
Chawathil First Nation Forest & Range Consultation and Revenue Sharing Agreement (FCRSA)
Chawathil First Nation has signed a total of three forest agreements with the Province since 2005. The first agreement was signed with a 5 year term, providing an opportunity to receive revenue sharing from the province and the direct award of non-replaceable forest licence A79502, with timber rights to 69,450 cubic meters. In 2010, the Province amended the revenue sharing formula of these agreements and decreased the term to 3 years. In addition to this these new agreements were separated where Chawathil had to negotiate the Forest Tenure Opportunity Agreement (FTOA) to receive a forest licence. The most recent forest agreement was signed in December of 2015 and access to timber rights were negotiated under the FTOA where NRFL A90591 and 138,680 cubic meters was awarded to Chawathil.
