The Coastal First Nations Great Bear Initiative (CFN) promotes community self-sufficiency and sustainable economic development on BC’s North and Central Coast and Haida Gwaii.
CFN communities are working together to build a strong, conservation-based economy that recognizes their Title and Rights and protects their culture and ecosystems.
Coastal First Nations 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 CFN communities
- Partnerships with government, industry, environmental groups and others
