Welcome to the Beecher Bay Lands Department. The Beecher Bay Lands Department serves Beecher Bay members by protecting and asserting our rights to our traditional lands that have sustained us for numerous generations.
Beecher Bay First Nation has been operating under the First Nations Land Management Act since the ratification, we have been operational under our Land Code since August 1st, 2003. As a signatory to the First Nations Land Management Act Beecher Bay First Nation has opted to take over the management and control of their land and resources, coming out from under the land and resource sections of the Indian Act. This includes the protection and management of the Reserve land environment.
The Beecher Bay Lands Management Department has two sets of lands groups’ who assist in providing input and helping shape the future of Beecher Bay First Nation. These groups are the Section 121 Board of Directors, and the Lands Management Advisory Committee. Each has their own responsibilities and governance structures.
There is an Environmental Management Plan that helps guide the use and protection of the Beecher Bay Lands that was created in March 2012. The Beecher Bay Lands Department is also in the process of a community survey in order to solidify their Land Use Plan.
