When a project is proposed within our traditional territory and archaeological permits are needed, Tsartlip First Nation takes in information requests from various agencies across the municipal, provincial and federal governments. This allows Tsartlip First Nation to oversee and protect our Traditional Territory.

We work with all levels of government and archaeology firms and assist with the consultation process. The goal is to create an environment where reconciliation between all aspects of government and Tsartlip First Nation is the main priority.

Our Core Values


“I always show respect. I never demand it from anyone, and I do everything I can to make sure it is earned.”

– Dave Elliot


Understanding that not everything can happen overnight, or we can’t always have the right answer on hand, but if we all have some patience for one another, we can all move further together than we could alone.
