PURPOSE OF POSITION
The Nation is seeking a Referrals Manager who will report to the Director of Lands, Economic Development, Incremental Self-Government and Referrals. The Referral Manager supports the development and implementation of referrals response protocols and agreements, in order to support meaningful engagement to protect the Nations aboriginal interested attached to Katzie Traditional Territory. Further job functions will include reporting on various data; preparation of reports and correspondence; communications with a wide variety of internal and external contacts, and handling referrals.
The referral process is driven by reconciliation whereby the Crown, including the provincial and federal governments, is required to engage with First Nations. A referral informs the Nation of a project/development that has potential for environmental and social impacts to and within their territory prior to issuing a license or permit. It provides the opportunity for the Nation to state their concerns related to the project/development to both the Crown and proponent. Additionally, referrals allow for economic development within the Nation through consultation, engagement and procurement opportunities.
