To Date

In 2020/21, FNPSS modified the existing MTAs to a virtual format and began delivering virtual workshops.

In 2020/2021, FNPSS hosted 3 MTAs that focused on Policy Development, Records and Information Management and Human Resources Management.

In 2019, FNPSS hosted 10 MTAs that focused on Policy Development, Records and Information Management and Human Resources Management.

Records and Information Management (RIM)

MTA-RIM-Poster-website

The purpose of the RIM MTA is to provide action-focused training that will help participants return to their organizations with strategies for managing their information. During the workshop, participants engage in “hands on” reviews of information capture and control, filing systems, electronic records, security issues and control systems. Additionally, participants work together to develop a strategy, plan and budget guidelines for the establishment and operation of a records and information management program in their respective organizations.

All participants also receive a copy of the FNPSS First Nations Information Management Toolkit. The toolkit includes valuable information and implementation strategies to help facilitate the incorporation of skills learned at the workshop. To request a hard copy of the FNPSS First Nations Information Management Toolkit, contact FNPSS.

Policy Development

Policy is a tool that helps support communities as they achieve their goals and clarifies how governments operate to the benefit of the citizens. Through the Policy MTA, participants build understanding of the purpose and objectives of policy, learn more about how it is used effectively, and engage in discussions on practical and everyday examples of policy at work within communities. The workshop also focuses on creating and sustaining policy frameworks that are aimed at achieving social, governance, economic and environmental success.

Policy MTA participants receive a copy of the FNPSS First Nations Policy Toolkit. The toolkit includes valuable information and implementation strategies to help facilitate the incorporation of skills learned at the workshop.

Human Resource Management (HR)

MTA-Poster-HR-website

The purpose of the Human Resource Management (HR) MTA is to provide training that will support participants in developing an HR plan that reinforces the current and future direction of their Nation or community. Participants discover strategic planning tools that are vital to the HR development, including SWOT analysis, tools for training and development, recruitment, reporting, performance management, plan monitoring, evaluation and more. Additionally, participants gain a valuable understanding of the management of HR roles and responsibilities within their teams.

Financial Management

As part of our commitment to ensuring we do not duplicate efforts of our partner organizations, rather than develop and offer unique financial management training, we recommend BC First Nations access the training available from the Aboriginal Financial Officers Association of BC (AFOABC) and the First Nations Financial Management Board (FNFMB).

Social Feeds

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!
