We would like to begin by acknowledging that the project is situated on the traditional territory of the Malahat First Nation. For generations, the Malahat people have lived and thrived on this land, and their culture, language, and history continue to shape the community today.


For the Malahat First Nation, the business park is a means for the involvement and promotion of the Malahat People in the lands, resources, and, in particular, the economy of the Malahat traditional territory.
