Protecting the archaeological sites of Riverview

January 17, 2018

BC Housing works with Kwikwetlem First Nation to protect culturally sensitive site

Under the guidance of the Heritage Conservation Act, BC Housing has been working closely with Kwikwetlem First Nation and Brown & Oakes Archaeology to ensure the ongoing protection of archaeological sites identified on the Riverview Lands.

BC Housing further supports the KFN Heritage Certification Program which is an educational and training program for all users of the site that teaches about the expectations of the Act, what to look out for in case a user happens across an artifact, what to do and who to contact if you find an artifact and lastly, the repercussions under the Act in the event of breeches under the Act.
