ABORIGINAL RIGHTS AND TITLE

Maynard brings over 12 years of administrative experience in the area of Aboriginal rights and title (or crown land referrals) and archaeology. From 1995 to 2007, Maynard facilitated discussions between First Nations, third-party interests (including corporations, small business, residential land developers and other levels of government) which resulted in Sliammon having more of a say in what was happening within its traditional territory. Maynard's approach simply involved respectful and timely communication as well as convincing the players at the table that positive working relationships were indeed possible. He used the crown land referrals process to generate revenues offsetting the significant administrative costs, enabling the Sliammon First Nation to effectively participate in the process.
