Nation Committees

In order to have a truly effective united voice, we must ensure that the full range of voices from our communities is represented in the progression of our work. Central to this recognition are the various committees that contribute to all the work that we do. Through the establishment of committees and councils, Syilx/Okanagan Nation communities work collectively with cultural and ecological knowledge keepers on all major issues to address project and policy impacts, benefits, management concerns, while reinforcing the Syilx/Okanagan Nation’s collective interests on their traditional territory. The key role of committees is to assist and provide technical advice to the CEC on various issues and topics.

Committees include:

Wellness Committee

  • Health Sub-Committee

Natural Resource Committee

  • Forestry Working Group
  • Culture and Heritage Working Group
  • Referrals Working Group
