Money for Muskwa-Kechika area

The province is providing another $500,000, to support collaborative land-use planning and government-to-government relations in the Muskwa-Kechika Management Area.

About 80 percent of the funding will go to the area’s advisory board, to support its mandate to provide government advice on the environmental and economic management of the region.

A government release says, the board is working to increase awareness of natural resource opportunities, so they can be fully realized for the benefit of the entire province.

To that end, it will hold government-to government discussions with First Nations, to ensure what Forests and Range Minister Pat Bell calls, a balance between a stable economy and environmental management.
