The purpose of the Area B Agricultural Area Committee is to provide comments and recommendations to the SLRD Board on agricultural issues within Electoral Area B and the District of Lillooet that are referred to the Committee by the Board.
The communities of Electoral Area B are varied and distinct, but all share in the natural beauty and rural character of the region. Found within the traditional territory of the St’át’imc Nation, large hunter-gatherer winter villages historically existed along the region’s many lakes and rivers. Rich salmon stocks supported the aboriginal economy. Settlers of European descent first came to the area in the early 1800s, and by the mid-1850s the fertile river bottoms and benches were being extensively farmed.
