B.C.’s Youngest Chief Balances Tradition With Major Development

At 24, Bryce Williams is the youngest chief in British Columbia, narrowly defeating long-time chief Kim Baird in 2012. Today he’s juggling the responsibility of the first urban self-governing nation in the province as governed by the 2009 Tsawwassen First Nation Treaty agreement. In Tsawwassen First Nation, with a population 328, there is a luxury housing development taking place along with the construction of the second largest mall in Canada, scheduled to open in 2016.
