A United Voice for First Nations Fisheries
The First Nations Fisheries Council of British Columbia works to implement the BC First Nations Fisheries Action Plan, a foundation for First Nations to seek increasing shares in the BC fishery and greater involvement in fisheries management and decision making. We work with BC First Nations to protect, reconcile and advance Aboriginal Title and Rights and Treaty Rights related to the health and protection of fish and aquatic resources and access for food, social, cultural and economic purposes.
The FNFC hosts various meetings and workshops throughout the year. Check out our calendar to see fisheries event dates for the FNFC and our partner organizations.
See our events section for details about FNFC meetings, workshops and events including registration information, travel subsidies, agendas, and meeting materials.
The FNFC supports the active engagement of First Nations in management processes and decision making, and to promote the health of aquatic resources and ecosystems for future generations.
BC First Nations have diverse interests, perspectives and priorities regarding aquaculture, and share a common interest and right to engage in decision making with respect to the regulation and management of aquaculture.
The Water For Fish Program is an initiative to support First Nations engagement in water governance processes and facilitate First Nations participation in promoting effective management practices for freshwater in BC.
Our work is driven by a number of foundational documents and reports that articulate the objectives and direction of BC First Nations in the Pacific fishery
