 Thank you for attending the First Nations Fisheries Council’s

FALL 2020 VIRTUAL ANNUAL GENERAL ASSEMBLY

…………………………………………………….

2020 has been a year is unlike any other. Our work has been challenged in so many ways by the COVID-19 pandemic, including office closures, restrictions on travel, and cancellation of in-person gatherings. But we’ve been busy learning, adapting, and finding new ways to advance our collective work through virtual meeting platforms and online sharing tools as we keep each other safe by staying apart.

For the 2020 Assembly we worked with the video production team at Oh Boy Productions and facilitator Dr. Michelle Corfield to bring you our first-ever virtual online Assembly on November 3, 4 and 5, 2020, streamed live from Vancouver on the territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.

We would like to send a big THANK YOU to our presenters, the production team, our facilitator Michelle, and to our participants for helping us to make our virtual 2020 Assembly a success!

The video recordings of the live sessions and the presentations are linked below. 

If you would like to provide feedback, please fill out our Assembly survey.
