Toquaht Nation joins ACRD board

The Toquaht Nation joined the ACRD Board as a full voting member effective as of Oct. 1, 2016.

The Alberni‐Clayoquot Regional District and Toquaht Nation are pleased to announce that effective Oct. 1, 2016, the Toquaht Nation joined the ACRD Board as a full voting member.

The Toquaht Nation is the final of the four Maa‐nulth Treaty Nations within the Alberni‐Clayoquot Regional District to join the board. With the addition of the Huu‐ay‐aht First Nation, Ucluelet First Nation Government, Uchucklesaht Tribe Government and Toquaht Nation, the ACRD board has grown from 10 to 14 members. The ACRD is the only regional district in B.C. to have more than a single First Nation as a member.

Toquaht Coun. Kirsten Johnsen has been attending and observing ACRD meetings since May 11, 2016. She has now been formally appointed to represent the Toquaht at the board table.

Toquaht Coun. Noah Plonka has been appointed alternate director to the board.

“Toquaht is looking forward to building stronger relationships with our neighbouring communities as we work toward our shared vision and goals,” said tyee ha’wilth Chief Anne Mack.

“We are grateful to have the Toquaht Nation join the Alberni‐Clayoquot Regional District. Such strong First Nations presence at the regional district enrichens dialogue and decision‐making, enabling more collaboration, cooperation and a truly shared vision for the region’s future,” said ACRD chair Josie Osborne.
