Redefining Collaborative Development in Treaty 8 Territory

Chief Trevor Makadahay has been Chief of Doig River First Nation since 2015. Since then, Doig River has demonstrated notable successes in governance, leadership, administration, and economic development. In 2017, Doig River was awarded the AFOA Canada Community Award of Excellence in part due to its exceptional financial performance ratios and low dependency on federal program funding and the establishment of their Economic Development Corporation Uujo Developments, a separate entity from the Nation’s administration.
Under Chief Makadahay’s leadership the community has completed its Treaty Land Entitlement Claim, established the first Urban Reserve in northeast British Columbia and will embark in a land code vote in June 2023. Chief Makadahay and his council are very committed to restoring and asserting Doig River’s jurisdiction over its lands for the benefit of its members.
