An Indigenous-led company using drone technology for post-fire restoration

In 2017, Central Chilcotin Rehabilitation Ltd. (CCR) was founded with a primary focus on rehabilitating dead pine stands in the Chilcotin region and transforming them into productive forests. The company was established as a joint venture between the Tsideldel First Nation and the Tl’etinqox Government.
