About Us:
Tsawwassen First Nation (TFN) is a proud Coast Salish nation south of the Fraser River along the Salish Sea. TFN is a modern treaty First Nation under the terms of a Final Agreement with Canada and British Columbia that became effective in 2009. The Tsawwassen First Nation Final Agreement is the first modern urban treaty in British Columbia, and the first to be negotiated through the BC Treaty Commission process.

TFN is now going through a period of revival and renewal as we plan our future and work towards our goal of becoming a strong, self-sufficient and sustainable First Nation for present and future generations. With a land base of 1,800 acres (724 hectares), TFN Lands are no longer reserve lands under the Indian Act; TFN owns its lands in fee simple and operates within the BC Land Title system.

Role Summary:
TFN is seeking to appoint a new member to the Economic Development Advisory Committee. The committee advises and makes non-binding recommendations to the Economic Development Department, TFN Chief Administrative Officer, and the board of directors of the TFN Economic Development Corporation on matters regarding TFN economic development. This role requires expertise in real estate and a robust network within the industrial development market of the Lower Mainland. Residency south of the Fraser River is preferred. This role is a remunerated position.
