A Progressive Community Moving
Towards Self-Determination

Líl̓wat Nation is a progressive First Nations community located 7 km north of Pemberton, BC.  With a membership of almost 2,200 people — approximately 1,450 of whom live in the community — the Líl̓wat Nation is the third largest First Nation in British Columbia.

The Nation is striving towards self-determination for, and by, its citizens by continuing to exert control over its Traditional Territory and resources. With economic development focused on land and resource management, Líl̓wat Nation is building the economic foundation for a sustainable community by exploring opportunities in retail, forestry, agriculture, energy projects and construction.

Líl̓wat Nation’s government, headed by an elected chief, a cultural chief and an 11-person council, is committed to transparency and employs best practices in all aspects of governance.
