One of SNRC’s key milestones in November 2022 was the purchase of a majority interest by the Ehattesaht/Chinehkint First Nation. This new model of Nation/Employee ownership is among the first in Canada at this scale and is a result of the long relationship that was built between the Nation and SNRC.
