K’ómoks First Nation Cultural Heritage Policy & Cultural Investigation Permit
Before submitting an application, we request that you review the K’ómoks First Nation Cultural Heritage Policy to determine if you require a Cultural Investigation Permit (CHIP).
Did you Know?
In October of 2020, the K’ómoks First Nation Cultural Heritage Policy was ratified by K’ómoks as an expression of its Indigenous laws protecting archaeological sites, artifacts, ancestral remains, and other cultural heritage across K’ómoks territory. Major projects or developments within an area considered to have a high archaeological potential will require a Cultural Heritage Investigation prior to development or harvesting. The goal of the investigation permit is to avoid unnecessary impacts to cultural heritage by proceeding cautiously with development in areas that have high archaeological potential.
