The Tsawwassen First Nation is located on the Salish Sea, near the mouth of the Fraser River, and immediately adjacent to the Municipality of Delta, in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia Canada. Our land base is approximately 724 hectares, which includes approximately 290 hectares of former reserve lands and 372 hectares of former provincial Crown land. Tsawwassen First Nation also owns in fee simple an additional 62 hectares of other land located within and under the jurisdiction of the Corporation of Delta.
Our Community sits in the middle of our traditional territory which covers approximately 279,600 hectares, bordered on the northeast by the watersheds that feed into Pitt Lake, down Pitt River to Pitt Meadows where they empty into the Fraser River. It includes Burns Bog and part of New Westminster, following the outflow of the river just south of Sea Island. From Sea Island it cuts across the Strait to Galiano Island and includes all of Saltspring, Pender, and Saturna Islands. From there, the territory continues northeast to include the Point Roberts peninsula, and the watersheds of the Serpentine and Nicomekl Rivers. Tsawwassen Lands are accessible via Highway #17, and by Local Boundary Roads that we share with the Municipality of Delta (41B Street, 52nd Street, and 27B Avenue). We are located adjacent to the BC Ferries Tsawwassen Terminal, and we are serviced by Translink bus routes #609 and #620.
