Harvesting Rights

Back in stock! We’ve updated and reprinted our award-winning booklet A Guide to Aboriginal Harvesting Rights and it’s now available for order. The booklet features a new look and revised, easy-to-read content. This booklet is for Aboriginal people who want to understand their harvesting rights  (fishing, hunting, gathering rights). It also explains what you can do if you’ve been charged with a harvesting offence (such as illegally hunting or fishing) and how to get legal help. The booklet explains in plain language:

  • the Aboriginal rights protected under the Constitution Act,
  • who these rights apply to,
  • Aboriginal harvesting rights in BC,
  • what you can do if you’ve been charged with a harvesting offence,
  • how to get legal help,
  • what happens in court.

The booklet now has more information on Métis rights, including information on how to become a Métis citizen in BC and how to get a Métis harvester card.
