This project will establish Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCAs) in three important areas of Tahltan Territory: Ice Mountain, Klappan Sacred Headwaters, and Sheslay through the Tahltan Land Stewardship Planning process. IPCAs are areas where Indigenous governments have the primary role in protecting and conserving ecosystems through Indigenous laws, governance, and knowledge systems.

Project Overview

The goal of the IPCAs Project is to protect up to one million hectares of land in the Ice Mountain, Klappan Sacred Headwaters and Sheslay areas. Deliverables include finalizing the Tahltan Land Stewardship Plan, establishing the IPCAs and having Tahltans involved in conservation through the Tahltan Guardians Program and other stewardship initiatives. The timeline is to have the IPCAs established by the end of March 2023.

Project Background

The Tahltan IPCAs project emerged from a successful proposal submitted to the Canada Nature Fund Target 1 Challenge in the winter of 2019. Funding was announced in August 2019, and the project has evolved into the overarching Tahltan Stewardship Initiative (TSI).
