The Fraser Salish Region consists of 32 First Nations communities, in which each community elects their own First Nations Chief based on their own selection process.
In order to coordinate and oversee health developments in the region, Fraser Salish First Nations formed the Fraser Salish Regional Caucus. This Caucus creates a space for political and technical leads from the region’s First Nations to come together to collaborate and share information. The Fraser Salish Chiefs and leaders created the Caucus to mirror the main groups within the Fraser Salish: Stó:lō Nation, Stó:lō Tribal Chiefs Council, and Independents.
Every First Nation community has space in the caucus for a Chief, Council member or community health lead representative, making up a total of 32 Caucus participants. The leadership from the Region also have sub-regional caucuses to bring forward sub-regional issues and concerns, which are brought to the full Caucus. Three representatives are then appointed to the Health Council to represent the Fraser Salish Region.
The table acts as an Executive body to the Interior Region Caucus, carrying out directions in between Caucus sessions. The following provides a description on the Fraser Salish Region Governance structure today.
