Strategic Planning Process - Help Us By Taking our Survey!
Have you been involved in the work of the Roundtable? Or are you interested in our mission to protect and improve the health of the Nechako watershed for future generations? Help us build our next strategic plan by taking the survey of the Nechako Watershed Roundtable.
The Nechako Watershed Roundtable has launched a strategic planning process to map out a direction for the next five years.
A key step is to survey members of the Roundtable and others interested in our mission, including people who have participated in past NWR annual meetings, technical meetings and working group activities.
The survey will take approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete. The survey is being conducted by researchers at UNBC. Responses to the survey will be anonymous; there will be no way to link your identity with your responses. A cumulative summary of survey results will be shared publicly and the findings will help the NWR develop and refine its strategic plan.
Would you like to take the survey? We'll be reaching out — but if we miss you, reach out to us!

NWR Video Project for Youth
The Nechako Watershed Roundtable has engaged youth to participate in the production of a video to depict the many narratives of the Nechako watershed. The film will highlight the NWR, the Nechako watershed and the communities of the Nechako watershed through the voices of youth participants. A youth workshop for the project was held in 2020, and filming took place in three communities around the watershed in March 2021. Watch for updates!

First Nations Representatives Needed for Core Committee
The Nechako Watershed Roundtable Core Committee has two seats open for First Nations representatives.
First Nations government candidates are nominated by their respective organizations. Candidates subsequently submit to the Nechako Watershed Roundtable an application (available from the Secretariat) and a formal letter of appointment from their organization. Current Core Committee members will decide on the approval of incoming members.
