Our Progress

We are currently focused on implementing our strategic plan and building out the Metlakatla CEM Program into a standalone department.. Our priorities for 2024 are to grow our program’s capacity, secure multi-year program funding, hold the first Metlakatla CEM Gathering, deliver the 2024 Metlakatla Membership Census, and establish Values Teams and work plans for priority values.

Metlakatla CEM is paving the way for other communities with regard to addressing and managing cumulative effects. We are excited to share with others what we have learned about how we can sustain what we have and preserve our future for Metlakatla members. Our program is helping Metlakatla's leadership understand, build and improve how projects and activities affect our territory and most importantly, our people. Jean Nelson, CEM Program Manager, 2024
