The Northwest Tribal Treaty Nations
(NWTT) is comprised of 40 distinct First Nations from northwestern British
Columbia. In December of 2002, the Northwest Tribal Treaty Nations concluded
an Economic Measures Agreement with the Treaty Negotiations Office of the Ministry of the Attorney General of British Columbia. The rationale of the agreement was to support the Northwest Tribal Treaty Nation to develop a First Nations Economic Strategy. The major purpose of the NWTT economic initiative project is to plan and
develop an integrated and coordinated approach to northern economic development
for those First Nations of northern British Columbia comprising the Northwest Tribal Treaty Nations.
