We are committed to working more closely with you to improve engagement and better guide our planning and decision-making on Cheam First Nation’s landfill remediation and other essential projects that affect our community.
You are welcome to the Cheam First Nation territory on Pilalt tribal grounds to share in the beauty and abundance of the Fraser River. The Cheam fishermen have 10,000 years of experience on the Fraser River – known to Cheam people as the Sto:lo river.
The Cheam landfill remediation project simultaneously improves the Cheam First Nation community, environment, and economy. The landfill, located right in the Cheam community, closed in 2001 and was capped with an engineered cover to control rainfall drainage, reduce water infiltration, and prevent leachate.
