Investing in First Nations in British Columbia to assist them in building their capacity.
We believe in the spirit of cooperation and collaboration that respects and advances First Nations' decision-making, traditional teachings, and laws. To achieve our Vision and Mission, the following Guiding Principles inform our shared work:
- We support First Nations in their capacity development efforts as they pursue individual and communal self-sufficiency
- We understand that effective communications and engagement with those that we serve strengthens and informs our activities
- We encourage fair and equitable access to our services through the creation of transparent criteria that focus on initiatives that lead to measurable change at the individual, community, and Nation levels
- We increase the investment fund through responsible management, leveraging of our assets and pursuit of additional resources that do not duplicate or replace existing government or First Nation programs
