Stewardship plan for Lillooet Sub Region
Forestry is the main economic sector, providing about one quarter of local employment.
The plan area has high recreation values due to its landforms, climatic diversity, relatively undeveloped state, and proximity to the lower mainland.
Farms and rangelands help sustain the local and regional economy.
Sustainable economic development and community expansion depends, to a large part, on the availability of Crown land and water.
Hydro-electric facilities on the Bridge and Seton rivers are the third largest in the province. Expansion opportunities are limited.
