Collaborative planning is a widely used decision making tool for land use management in British Columbia, Canada. This study evaluates the planning process of one of the Land and Resource Management Plans developed in British Columbia based on collaborative planning principles. Unlike other collaborative planning processes in BC, a two-tiered model was implemented where First Nations only participated in the second tier of government-to-government negotiations. Results of this study are compared to other LRMP case study evaluations conducted at REM that also utilized a two-tier model, and also LRMP evaluations where a one-tiered model was used. The Sea-to-Sky LRMP process resulted in a consensus agreement but the level of support for the process and final agreement differed between actors from the two-tiers of the process. Recommendations are made for improving the use of future two-tiered collaborative planning processes in BC.
