Nisga'a Economic Development

The Nisga'a Nation is blessed with abundant natural resources and a naturally resourceful people. Now that our land is secure under the Nisga'a Final Agreement, Nisga'a Lisims Government and the Nisga'a people are busy building capacity, exploring opportunities, and developing our economy for long-term sustainability.

Nisga'a Economy

The Nisga'a Nation is a fully-integrated part of northwest British Columbia's economy, with an abundant water supply, safe road access, and fibre-optic, broadband Internet access. The primary industries in the Nass Valley are fishing and forestry, which are complemented by employment in the government, education, and healthcare sectors. Infrastructure improvements have brought new jobs and skills to the Nass Valley while tourism and telecommunication offer the promise of expanding and diversified employment opportunities.

From small, local business initiatives to international partnerships, Nisga'a Lisims Government actively supports and facilitates new initiatives to improve employment opportunities in the Nass Valley.
