The agreement is intended create a culture of collaboration, and install confidence in the community 120 kilometres north of Fort St. John, now that a formal process is in place. 

“These negotiations have improved the relationship between Halfway River First Nation, the Commission and the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Natural Gas, resulting in a better consultation process for oil and gas activities and pre-tenure sale applications that addresses key issues for our community,” argues Halfway River First Nation Chief Russell Lilly.

The cost of funding Halfway River’s review of referrals will be sourced completely through industry application fees collected by the Commission.
