Description: The Columbia River Treaty Heritage Project will implement a heritage touring route linking a series of interpretive signage or other commemorative elements at key locations in the Columbia Basin telling place-based stories of the Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples and communities impacted by the Columbia River Treaty. Telling the stories will help reconciliation with local communities and Indigenous Nations, while branding and promoting it will communicate the Treaty’s history in a series of points of interest for travellers.
The Request for Proposals is for a two-year project, in which the first year is expected to be devoted to engagement, design, content development and securing approvals and commemorative element funding, while the second and any following years will involve creating, placing, launching and supporting the touring route and its new facilities. The closing date for the RFP is January 24, 2021.
Budget: The maximum budget is $150,000. Additional partnerships are under development for funding for the commemorative projects.
