Sliammon First Nation is interested in engaging in strategic partnerships and joint ventures on our lands. Our territory holds numerous opportunities for economic development including residential, commercial and industrial development, as well as many opportunities within natural resources and commercial fishing.

Sliammon First Nation has performed considerable work and planning in facilitating economic development. Tools have been developed to streamline decision making and support business stability. These tools are the Sliammon Land Code (2003), Sliammon Comprehensive Community Plan (2007), Tla’amin Constitution (2009), the Sliammon Financial Administration Law (2011), the Tla’amin Economic Development Strategy (2011), and the Land Use Plan: Reserve Lands (2012) & Treaty Settlement Lands (2014).
