Our HistoryWe grew from a determination to seek out a prosperous future.
After St’át’imc and BC Hydro signed a Comprehensive Settlement and Relations Agreement in 2011, St’át’imc have worked to establish a structure to manage and implement the settlement agreement. The structure includes a political, governance and economic entity.
St’át’imc Chiefs Council (SCC) is the political body entity, comprising of the 11 St’át’imc communities. The St’át’imc Authority (SA) is authorized to sign agreements on behalf of the Nation.
St’át’imc Government Services (SGS) are responsible for the implementation of the Settlement Agreement.
Since 2014, St’át’imc Eco-Resources Ltd. is a for-profit incorporated entity comprising 9 of the 11 St’át’imc communities and facilitates sustainable economic development opportunities for the St’át’imc Nation.
Milestones in the history of SER
Where it all began
The St’át’imc people gave the Chiefs the direction to work together to advance and protect St’át’imc Title and Rights. The St’át’imc Chiefs formalized as an unincorporated society called the St’át’imc Chiefs Council (SCC) to collectively work and advocate for the St’át’imc people and their lands on various political issues.
