50th Annual General Assembly of the UBCIC being held in Kamloops

Over 100 Chiefs, proxies, and policy experts have gathered in Kamloops for the 50th Annual General Assembly of the Union of BC Indian Chiefs.

The three day event, which began yesterday, will feature discussions on important political and social issues impacting BC First Nations.

Agenda items for this year’s meetings include: Canada’s proposed Recognition and Implementation of Indigenous Rights Framework, UBCIC’s submission to the National Inquiry on Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women, and protections for wild salmon.

Three special events will be held as well, including a group photograph, an Indigenous Women in Leadership Dinner, and a test screening of a UBCIC documentary by Doreen Manuel titled Unceded Chiefs.

On top of that, Grand Chief Stewart Phillip is set to be honoured for his 20th year as UBCIC President.
