Tla'amin (pronounced TL-HA-men) Nation are descendants of a rich heritage with a history that stretches back to time immemorial. Their territory spans along the northern part of what is now known as B.C.'s Sunshine Coast- extending down both sides of the Straight of Georgia, covering an area over 400 square kilometers in size. With waterways as the highways, Tla'amin villages were located along the coast and through Desolation Sound.
After more than 20 years of treaty negotiations with the Provincial and Federal Government, Tla'amin achieved a modern treaty agreement on April 5th, 2016. The Agreement includes broad powers in the areas of governance, lands, and health and social matters. Tla'amin Nation is now the largest fee simple landowner in the region.
