Garibaldi at Squamish

Member Engagement

In 2007, the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (agreement) with the Garibaldi at Squamish proponent, which included economic partnership. Nexwsxwníw̓ntm ta Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation Council) has mandated Ta na wa Yúus ta Stitúyntsam̓, the Nation’s Rights & Title Department, and Nch’ḵay̓ Development Corporation, the economic development arm of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw, to review the updated changes to the proposed Garibaldi at Squamish (GAS) Project. 

 The Review will include an updated project analysis, including assessment of: 

  • Environmental review 
  • Rights and title 
  • Climate impacts 
  • Intergovernmental relationships 
  • Heritage and archaeology 

As part of the review, Ta na wa Yúus ta Stitúyntsam̓ (Rights & Title) will be conducting a survey to obtain Member feedback about the proposed updated changes to the Project. The results of the survey will be provided to Nexwsxwníw̓ntm ta Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation Council). This Member feedback will help guide Council in its review of the updated changes to the proposed Project and its review of the agreement in relation to the updated changes to the proposed Project. Council will report back to the community on the feedback received from Members and next steps.
