BC Housing

TWC is developing a What We Heard Report that will inform the development and implementation of a Reconciliation Strategy for BC Housing. TWC led discussions with Indigenous Nations, communities, organizations, BC Housing staff members, and BC Housing’s Board of Commissioners about BC Housing’s approach to reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, including key actions and measures for tracking progress. The Report provides a set of preliminary recommendations for BC Housing, which will inform a Strategy and will result in a meaningful plan and framework for BC Housing to enhance their relationships and partnerships with Indigenous peoples.

CleanBC

As part of the Province of BC’s initiative to reduce its carbon footprint, a new provincial plan has been developed that will make clean energy a larger component of BC’s economy, and increase the capacity for jobs and education within the province. TWC’s role is to work collaboratively with government regulators and Indigenous communities to develop an engagement strategy for CleanBC that includes the interests of, and opportunities for, Indigenous communities. To achieve this, TWC is supporting the Provincial CleanBC Working Group’s partnership with Indigenous groups and facilitating meetings between the groups to build strong working relationships.

Community Based Monitoring Workshop

Indigenous Nations involved in the process of remediation of abandoned mines in Northern Canada expressed an interest in developing community-based monitoring programs. In pursuing these interests, the TWC team was responsible for facilitating a multi-day workshop in Yellowknife, NT, with interested Indigenous Nations and regulators. The aim of the workshop was to determine the goals and objectives required for a framework of a community-based monitoring program. To ensure that the recommendations from the workshops reflected the voices of the communities, TWC’s facilitation process included meeting notes being transcribed in situ for participants to review discussions from the previous day. This process enabled accurate and meaningful workshop process and following documentation. Based on the workshop, TWC prepared a proposed community-based monitoring framework that included indicators, methodologies, training requirements, and plans for communications and record maintenance.
