First Nations Fisheries

A United Voice for First Nations Fisheries

Strategic Plan


The roles and responsibilities of the FNFC have continued to grow and change since its inception, and we require a Strategic Plan to ensure that the FNFC remains a healthy, vibrant and sustainable organization that maintains adequate capacity to advance the fisheries interests of BC First Nations in a context of a shifting management, policy and legislative environment.

Through the BC First Nations Fisheries Action Plan, BC First Nations have directed the FNFC to support, protect, reconcile and advance Aboriginal Title and Rights and Treaty Rights related to fisheries and the health and protection of aquatic resources. Our priorities are to develop effective governance mechanisms, form collaborative relationships among First Nations organizations, and work together toward a united voice on fisheries. Our FNFC Strategic Plan 2015-2018 charts our course forward.
