Land and CapitalTransfer

24,463 acres + $150 million to start

The SXTA Treaty lands vision is a 100-year plan to account for future generations. Our vision is built on three pillars: self-governance, self-sufficiency and a vibrant, recognized and respected culture and heritage.

As approved in November 2017, the Lands and Capital Transfer will add 24,463 acres to our existing 923 acres of reserve land. Under the SXTA Treaty these lands will be under our full control. Nothing will happen on these lands without our full consent.

This land offer comes with $150 million lump sum capital transfer for our use. There will also be a land acquisition fund, additional annual transfer payments for programs and services, and funding for self-government.

As well, our vision is to maintain and enhance hunting, fishing and gathering rights and enter into shared decision-making agreements over the use of land and resources outside of our treaty lands within S’ólh Téméxw.

In negotiating the Land and Capital transfer, we kept these land uses and values in mind:

  • Residential
  • Industrial/Commercial
  • Institutional
  • Recreational
  • Educational
  • Cultural

We have negotiated a starting point that provides a basis for land use / governance / economic / administrative planning. Once we enter into Stage 5 – THERE WILL BE MORE.
