Scope and content
This series consists of records related to land resource management planning activities, specifically those of the First Nations Working Group of the Integrated Resource Planning Committee who were responsible for the inquiry into First Nations’ consultation and participation in planning. The records come from the Evaluation and Economics Branch of the Policy, Planning and Legislation Department, B.C. Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks. Specifically, most records appear to be those created and collected by Algis Janusauskas, co-chair of the First Nations Working Group. Records include his speaking notes for meetings and presentations, correspondence and annotated draft reports written by him or others within the branch or the working group.
The series does not appear to contain records from any actual consultations or negotiations with Indigenous groups, rather the records relate to ways the Ministry and Department might approach First Nations, survey the potential interests of First Nations in land-use planning and assess the lack of participation from Indigenous groups. It also includes reports that were produced after consultations with different Indigenous groups. A number of these reports were prepared internally and by external consulting groups. They include reports such as A Guiding Direction for First Nation Involvement in Land and Resource Management Planning, a socio-economic profile of the Okanagan and Shuswap First Nations, and a report on the processes for documenting First Nations’ interests in land and resource management planning. Other records include correspondence, background statements, meeting agendas and memos related to the process of determining the planning, goals, approaches and outcomes of the reports.
At the time of appraisal, the records were given file codes according to schedule 144100 (Resource Management Operational Records Classification System) and were filed under the primary and secondary numbers 17550-25 : RMP : Land and Resource Management Plans – First Nations consultation case files. The actual files have the file codes 30000-20/LRMFN written on them and are from an unknown schedule that was replaced with the above mentioned schedule.
