Summary of Economic Development Agreements, Community Businesses and Joint Ventures
The LNIB Lands and Economic Development office works to engage with proponents of existing and proposed projects in its traditional territory. It is working to advance the interests of LNIB members in ongoing negotiations with Kinder Morgan regarding the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion. It has also been successful in negotiating revenue and benefits sharing agreements with Teck's Highland Valley Copper Mine, and the Innergex Kwoiek Creek hydro project. Many LNIB members act as independent contractors and tradespeople.
