Aboriginal Interest and Use Study
The Carrier Sekani Tribal Council (CSTC) has advocated for meaningful involvement of the member First Nations in any decision making process on lands & resources within their territories, including the regulatory process for the Gateway pipeline. The AIUS is meant to establish the context for any decision making process on the Gateway pipeline, but it is preliminary in nature.
Yinka Dene Alliance
The Yinka Dene Alliance includes Nadleh Whut'en, Nak'azdli, Takla Lake, Saik'uz, and Tl’azt’en First Nations in northern BC, which have banned the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipelines from our territories. In November 2016, the Yinka Dene Alliance and our allies won our decade-long battle when the federal government formally rejected Enbridge's Northern Gateway project
