Ahousaht Stewardship Fund

AHOUSAHT STEWARDSHIP FUND

In welcoming you to ʕaḥuusʔatḥ haḥuułii, we want to continue our ancestral responsibility to steward and monitor the lands and waters that support our people.

Our Stewardship Guardian program is supported in part by an ecosystem service fee, the Ahousaht Stewardship Fee, collected from visitors recreating in ʕaḥuusʔatḥ haḥuułii.

Individuals, groups and families visiting the territory can remit their ʕaḥuusʔatḥ Stewardship Fees at www.mhssahousaht.ca or at 9-368 Main Street during business hours.

Guide outfitters and operators, transportation charter companies and water taxis are asked to collect the ʕaḥuusʔatḥ Stewardship Fees on behalf of their guests and customers and to remit fees to the Maaqutusiis Hahoulthee Stewardship Society.

An annual report outlining the activities of the Stewardship Guardians supported by the ʕaḥuusʔatḥ Stewardship Fee will be made available at www.mhssahousaht.ca.

Participating businesses recognized as partners of ʕaḥuusʔatḥ will receive recognition of their commitment to the ʕaḥuusʔatḥ Stewardship Fee program that they can use to promote their businesses.

ƛlecko – thank you – for supporting our stewardship initiatives.
