B.C. Cabinet & First Nations Leaders’ Gathering


Decision to Postpone the 2021 B.C. Cabinet and First Nations Leaders’ Gathering

We are writing to inform you that, after careful review of Environment Canada’s weather modelling, the Government of British Columbia and First Nations Leadership Council have postponed the 2021 B.C. Cabinet and First Nations Leaders’ Gathering so First Nations and provincial leadership can focus on working together to respond to the immediate threats of the extreme weather.

While we are disappointed to postpone, we recognize the responsibilities we share as leaders to prioritize the safety of our communities.

We are deeply committed to the Gathering as an important government-to-government forum to advance productive discussions on our collective and individual community priorities.

Our planning teams are exploring options to reschedule the Gathering as soon as possible.

We want to express our appreciation to all the leaders whose communities have faced many challenges over the last year, and your willingness to participate in this event.

We look forward to advising you of new dates for the Gathering soon.
