Do the CCP Survey! (Click here to visit Survey Monkey)

Comprehensive Community Planning allows a community to work together to chart new directions for the future. A Comprehensive Community Plan addresses all aspects of community life: Governance, Land, Resources, Health, Infrastructure Development, Culture, Social Issues, and the Economy. It sets out a blueprint for protecting the past, working in the present, and planning for the future. Comprehensive Community Planning is developed by the community, for the community.

How is CCP different than the Land Code?

The land code is a plan for reserve lands while the CCP will include visions and goals for our governance, health, Elders, Youth, and other lands, like We Wai Kai privately owned lands and treaty settlement lands. It is a bigger, more encompassing plan for our future as a community.

Why would We Wai Kai want a CCP?

Because CCP is an effective tool to build a healthy and sustainable community. CCP is being used by many First Nations in BC to achieve short and long term goals that meet the needs and dreams of each community. CCP increases the capacity for successes in First Nations. It helps to build relationships with other governments. 

What are the benefits of CCP?

A CCP helps the community to address current needs and to build existing strengths while preparing for the future. Community development will be driven by focused decision making and the cost effective use of funding. Benefits of CCP include:

  • Enables the community to define a vision for the future
  • Reinforces community values
  • Improves decision making
