The B.C. Treaty Commission is looking for the best summer harvest photographs from the province’s First Nations, with three winners receiving Visa gift cards. All submitted pictures will be kept in the BCTC’s photo bank, and may be used on their website, on social media, or in publications.

It doesn’t matter what’s being harvested, so if you have pictures of berry picking, fishing, hunting, or seaweed harvesting, send them in. You can do this by tagging your photo #bctreaty on Twitter or Instagram, or by e-mailing it to communications@bctreaty.ca

The B.C. Treaty Commission does not negotiate treaties, but is an independent body responsible for facilitating treaty negotiations among the governments of Canada, B.C. and First Nations in the province. It was established in 1992, and oversees the negotiation process to ensure that the parties involved are being effective and are making progress. The BCTC also provides public information and education resources, and allocates funding to First Nations to provide support for the negotiation process.
