FNPSS is pleased to announce our 2018-2021 Accomplishments Report is now available!
Our report profiles some of FNPSS’ accomplishments undertaken in support of BC First Nations administration capacity building since our re-establishment in 2018. It outlines how we rebuilt in this short time as an organization, and quickly pivoted to offering our programs and services virtually to meet the needs of BC First Nations during the COVID-19 pandemic. It also provides a glimpse into the future as we strive to provide BC’s First Nation Public Service with programs and services that meet their continually changing needs.
- 71 Learning, Sharing & Capacity Building Opportunities
- 7 virtual events & 110 virtual meetings supported
- 92% of BC First Nations communities participated in learning programs
“In today’s environment, FNPSS’ work is even more important so that our governments are well-positioned to respond to the opportunities and challenges of self-government, increased rights recognition, and to re-assume authority over our governing practices, lands, resources, and culture. We need to build and support our government administration workforce to deliver on these responsibilities successfully.” – First Nations Summit Political Executive
“Over the past three years, FNPSS has significantly expanded its operations and its team to better support BC First Nations by providing training, events, and opportunities, and by collaborating with a wide array of partners. As the BAAC and a key partner, we connect and share our input from regions and communities across the province to inform FNPSS priorities with the aim of improving services for BC First Nations.” – BAAC Members
“We want to thank each of the First Nation Elders, Chiefs, Councillors, Band Administrators, other First Nation community and organization staff, and youth who have shared their experiences, knowledge, and time to speak at our training sessions and events, advised on one of our development committees, or given of themselves in other ways to support other BC First Nations. Haawa.” “We are all looking forward to what we can achieve together in the years to come.” – Jehan Casey, Director, FNPSS
We raise our hands in gratitude!
