FRASER RIVER DIALOGUES
The purpose of the Fraser River Dialogues is to engage interested parties on Fraser River issues and opportunities:
From a fact-based, three pillar perspective that is apolitical and non-ideological;
Through an approach to dialogue and information exchange that is open and positive; and
In an environment that is respectful and safe for all questions, comments and opinions.
The Dialogues use a “fire-side” chat format, rather than as a traditional presentation. The FRDC Director of External Relations and Development has a conversation with our guests, who speak on the topic from an environmental, socio-cultural and/or economic perspective. That is followed by a facilitated Q&A. Previous dialogues include discussions on the Salish Sea Survival Project (with Pacific Salmon Foundation CEO Dr. Brian Riddell) and Fraser River Trade (with Doug Mills from the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority).

COLLABORATION IN THE SPIRIT OF snəw̓eyəɬ
Tuesday, November 1st, 7:00pm – 8:30pm
The FRDC is excited to present its next edition of Fraser River Dialogues- COLLABORATION IN THE SPIRIT OF snəw̓eyəɬ with the First Nations Fisheries Legacy Fund on Tuesday, November 1st at 7:00pm!
As part of our work with our partners the Musqueam Indian Band (MIB) to develop xʷtatəl̕ləm at the Fraser River Discovery Centre (FRDC), we are excited to welcome the First Nations Fisheries Legacy Fund (FNFLF) to our next virtual Fraser River Dialogue.
FNFLF was established to ensure a positive and productive collaboration between First Nations, governments, and the private sector to protect, preserve, and enhance important environmental areas. Six First Nations — Katzie, Kwantlen, Kwikwetlem, Musqueam, Tsawwassen, and Tsleil-Waututh — are now working together in the spirit of snəw̓eyəɬ, “traditional teachings with a central focus on sustainability and long-term planning”, for the health of aquatic ecosystems of the lower Fraser River and Burrard Inlet.
Morgan Guerin, FNFLF president, and Jenna Duncan, FNFLF Manager, will join us on a panel to talk about the work they are doing to preserve, protect, and restore the lands, waters, and resources within the traditional territories of the six First Nations.
This Dialogue will take place online via Zoom and is free of charge, although donations to the Fraser River Discovery Centre are encouraged. Registration will include a link to the Zoom meeting. Click HERE to register for this event.
