"The Yale people have been here, well, since time began." - Elder, Lawrence Hope
We are an independent First Nation, standing apart from both Sto:lo Nation, and the Nlakapamux. We presently have approximately 150 band members, on and off reserve. We are in the final stages of negotiating a treaty with the BC and Canadian government.
We have 8 regular staff members who manage the following programs: Community Health, Band Support, Finance, Social Development, Treaty, Education, Fisheries, Lands & Resource Manager.
In the summer months we hire monitors for Chinook and Sockeye fisheries. In the last two years we have hired staff members for the Qualark Creek Hydroacoustic Counting Station. We also hire summer students who work for a minimum of 8 weeks during the summer months.
