Squamish Nation (see note below)
Note: The Gibsons area is part of the traditional territory of the Squamish Nation. The vast majority of Squamish Nation members live on the north side of Howe Sound from North Vancouver to Whistler, and the Nation’s offices are located in North Vancouver and Squamish. The Nation administers several parcels of land on the Sunshine Coast, including the waterfront Chekwelp parcel that borders the Town of Gibsons (currently vacant; earmarked for future development).
