  • Declared Title Area

    park map

    In 2014, the Supreme Court of Canada recognized Tŝilhqot’in Nation’s Aboriginal title to 1,700 square kilometres of land in the Chilcotin region called the Declared Title Area, along with the right and responsibility to manage and determine how the land is used. The Province of British Columbia, Tŝilhqot’in Nation, and Xeni Gwet’in First Nation are working to implement a shared vision of establishing the Declared Title Area as a unique, world-class example of government-to-government and nation-to-nation partnership grounded in Indigenous leadership, vision and self-determination. This includes working collaboratively to manage the impact of human activity on grizzly bears, fish, and other wildlife in the Upper Chilko Corridor.

    The map to the right shows the land that is subject to the declaration of Aboriginal title, including Ts’il?os Park, Nuntsi Park, & Cardiff Ecological Reserve. Persons interested in visiting parks within the Declared Title Area for camping and associated recreational activities are encouraged to visit the Tsilhqot’in National Government webpage, to better understand the visitor protocols and procedures.
