Moving Forward Together, One Project at a Time

The Gitga'at Nation is committed to the health and preservation of its land and waters. The abundance of natural resources in Gitga'at territory is closely tied to the wellbeing of its people. As stewards of their territory, the community continues to protect its resources using a combination of ancient ways and modern methods backed by science.
