Conferences and Online Forums

FNPSS Conferences offer plenary sessions with keynotes and panels from First Nation leadership, full day pre-conference workshops and breakouts on policy development, human resources management, records and information management and case study sessions with First Nation groups.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, FNPSS has cancelled all planned in-person conferences and instead is hosting online Forums with much the same content and networking opportunities, but in a virtual setting.

Past Conferences and Forums

2020 Forum

The 2020 Forum entitled ‘Managing New Realities’ focused on the sharing of best practices and policies amongst BC First Nations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, the forum provided a platform for First Nation administrators to share their priorities and needs during the COVID-19 pandemic, which provides feedback and direction for FNPSS and our partners activities, and supports Administrators' relationships with community and Nation leadership. In attendance were 93 participants from over 34 communities and organizations and over 32 federal government volunteers from various departments and agencies, coordinated by the BC Federal Council secretariat, who tuned in from across Canada and provided support to the FNPSS team and to event attendees.

2019 Conference

The 2019 FNPSS conference focused on how partnerships are 'Breaking Barriers and Creating Connections' between First Nations, First Nation organizations, government and others to enhance and build capacity in our Nations and communities.

2018 Conference

The 2018 Annual FNPSS Conference was attended by approximately 150 First Nations, Federal and Provincial Government staff and partner organization representatives. The conference featured a panel of experts in the public service and Indigenous youth, as well as a series of workshops with First Nations experts and networking sessions.

If you need help, please reach out. Having an emotional reaction from hearing about the atrocious history and impacts of Indian Residential Schools is completely justified and normal. What happened was wrong and never should have happened.

I am not a supporter of Organization that are Federally Funded . Not different than federal elected Indian Act Chiefs n Councils . All are under the policies who they are funded under .

Is this for administrators/staff only or is there spots for interested community members who are not employed by the Band office?

Let’s go Yow!

Teach people to treat their members equally

That looks like some excellent programming!
