Sustainable, Long-Term Core Funding Needed

The BC Cabinet approved Strategy 3 in 2020, however, BCFNJC has not yet received an invitation from the Treasury Board for core funding.

BCFNJC receives funding from three primary sources: the provincial government, the federal government, and the Law Foundation of BC. Some of the funding is prescribed, while federal funding sometimes passes through the province. The majority of our funding comes from BC through a letter that historically did not include extensive reporting requirements.

Our main grant from the Law Foundation is the capacity grant, which supports the establishment of the Elders and Knowledge Keepers Council, and the expansion of our service departments (Communications, Human Resources, Information Technology, and Information Management).
