First Nations Communities
The City of Chilliwack is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Stó:lō Coast Salish peoples. More than ten First Nations are part of the community and share borders with the City of Chilliwack. First Nations communities are self-governed, managing their own development decisions. The City maintains regular dialogue with neighbouring First Nations on future growth and development, and coordinates opportunities for collaboration on infrastructure planning (including traffic management, servicing, utility system capacity planning, etc.).
