Draft community vision

Kitsumkalum has a strong culture, which we will keep alive throughout all of the generations. We are a self-sufficient and prosperous nation, with well-educated and successful community members.
We prize our good health, and take good care of our elders. We also take care of our land, as it has taken care of us since time immemorial.
We are proud to live in a community that is safe, accessible and beautiful. We have good leaders and staff, and together we use the strength of our past to lead us to a successful future.

What’s in a Comprehensive Community Plan?

Kitsumkalum’s Comprehensive Community Plan will cover a broad spectrum of topics: the use of resource lands, protection of culturally-significant areas, identification of economic development zones, and plans for housing . The Plan takes a short-to mid-range view (5 – 15 years) on land development, land protection, and growth and change in our community, working hand in hand with Land Use Planning to avoid overlapping efforts.

Along with lands and resources, the Comprehensive community plan will also cover goals, objectives, and activities for health, infrastructure development, culture, social, education,
economy and governance.
