The Muskwa-Kechika Management Area was established in 1998 after Kaska Dena Council negotiated a Letter of Understanding (LOU) with British Columbia regarding the implantation of the Fort Nelson Land & Resource Management Plan.
A Board was established to advise the BC Government on the management of the M-K Management Area. The Board consists of eighteen members of which Corrine Porter (Daylu Dena Council), Bill Lux (Dease River First Nation), Peter Stone (Muncho Lake) and Danny Case (Kwadacha Nation) represent the Kaska regions in BC.
The M-K Act requires that there will be five local strategic plans completed prior to any resource development in the Muskwa area. The BC Government is currently working towards completing the wildlife plan, parks plan and the recreation plan.
Kaska Dena Council is exploring a Government to Government process for the M-K area along with the BC Government and other First Nations.
