Economic Development

The Tŝideldel First Nation has a rich history of economic development deeply connected to the land. For generations, community members relied on traditional practices such as hunting, fishing, and gathering, and traded goods with neighboring communities, notably with the people of Bella Coola.

In recent years, the community has embarked on several business ventures, while also expressing a strong desire to revive cultural practices that support self-sufficiency and family livelihoods. By reclaiming these traditions and exploring new opportunities for economic growth, Tŝideldel is building a brighter future for its members and the wider community.
