CCCR has had the privilege of working with First Nations governments for over three decades:
In the Yukon, CCCR is carrying out a 3-year process of organizational development with the Teslin Tlingit Council, a self-governing First Nation. The result: a 5-year integrated strategic plan and budget, and measures for tracking progress. In addition, Teslin has greater capacity in governance and management to shape and direct change.
Assistance assessing opportunities and negotiating joint ventures. On Vancouver Island for example, CCCR was the lead negotiator in the creation of MaMook-Coulson. This joint venture brought together five First Nations and several components of the Coulson Group of Companies in an agreement that involved Aboriginal participation in value-added wood manufacturing as well as other aspects of harvesting and engineering.
The Nuu-Chah-Nulth Forestry Study was a landmark action-research project that CCCR carried out on the west coast of Vancouver Island in order to develop a strategy for advancing the interests of the 14 Nuu-Chah-Nulth member First Nations in the forestry industry.
