First Nations Fisheries

A United Voice for First Nations Fisheries

 

The Assembly brings together First Nations leaders, community members, and fisheries and natural resources staff from across the province on an annual basis to receive updates on the work of the FNFC and engage in strategic discussions on operational, policy and legislative issues related to fisheries. This year’s event was held on November 7 and 8, 2017 at the Songhees Wellness Centre in Victoria.

Thank you to all speakers and participants who helped to make this year’s Assembly a great event, and to the Songhees First Nation for hosting us at the beautiful Wellness Centre! Please see the links below to download the presentations in PDF format.
