Kirk & Co. worked with members of the Gitxaala Nation Governing Council to develop and implement a member consultation program regarding the purposes of a Trust Agreement. The agreement describes how funds from Impact Benefit Agreements (IBAs) with companies wanting to do business in Gitxaala territory can be used and protected for future generations of Gitxaala people.

Kirk & Co.’s support included: developing a discussion guide and survey, available online and in hard copy, notifying members of consultation opportunities, coordinating member meetings in Kitkatla, Prince Rupert, Vancouver and Prince George and reporting on feedback received.


The Gitxaala Nation is a First Nation located at Kitkatla on Dolphin Island on the North Coast of British Columbia, approximately 45 km from the city of Prince Rupert.
