Koksilah Watershed Sustainability Plan Steering Committee Summary and Recommendations
This Recommendations Brief summarizes the outcomes from a 16-month scoping process undertaken by Cowichan Tribes and the Province of BC (FLNRORD) to:
- develop consensus decisions regarding planning in the Xwulqw’selu - Koksilah Watershed; and,
- scope a long-term agreement with respect to ongoing collaborative management and governance of the Watershed.
It is being provided to Cowichan Tribes Chief and Council and the Minister of Forests Lands and Natural Resource Operations to conclude the activities under the 2020 Interim Letter of Agreement and to seek a mandate to initiate recommended next steps.
Pending confirmation by the authority holders, this document may then be shared more broadly with community members, water users, interest groups, and others who care about the future of the Xwulqw’selu - Koksilah Watershed.
