Agreement in Principle
Currently, Kitselas has an Agreement in Principle (AIP) in place. The Kitselas people voted to ratify the AIP in 2013 and the Kitselas Government signed it in August 2015.
The AIP provides a framework for what the Kitselas Treaty will look like, but the AIP is not legally binding. The AIP is like a rough draft of the Treaty that is being tweaked and finalized through ongoing negotiations. The final draft will result in the Kitselas First Nations’ Treaty.
