Melissa Tokarek, Director of Lands, Malahat Nation, BC

Melissa Tokarek shares her community’s interest in law enforcement from its perspective as a nation with its own land code.

She takes a particular interest in environmental laws, no doubt due to her background as an Environmental Cooordinator with Defence Construction Canada and an Environmental Scientist with then-Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada. She earned her Master of Science in Environmental Practice at Royal Roads University.

She sat down with host Richard Perry at the 2023 National Conference on the Enforcement of First Nation Laws, hosted by the First Nation Lands Advisory Board and the First Nations Lands Advisory Board.
