About The New Relationship Trust

The New Relationship Trust (NRT) is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening First Nations in BC through capacity building. 

NRT invests in BC First Nations by supporting them in five key capacity development areas: Governance capacity, Education, Language & Culture, Youth & Elders, and Economic development.

OUR VISION

Our vision is a British Columbia where First Nations enjoy a high quality of life that includes vibrant cultures and languages, effective and independent governments, social justice, and economic prosperity, and where all forms of education are valued and accessible.

We believe in the spirit of cooperation and collaboration that respects and advances First Nations’ decision-making, traditional teachings, and laws. To achieve our Vision, the following Guiding Principles inform our shared work:

  • Supporting First Nations in their capacity development efforts as they pursue individual and communal self-sufficiency
  • Engaging in effective communications and engagement with those that we serve to strengthen and inform our activities
  • Ensuring fair and equitable access to our services through the creation of transparent criteria that focus on initiatives that lead to measurable change at the individual, community and Nation levels
  • Increasing the investment fund through responsible management, leveraging of our assets and pursuit of additional resources while not duplicating or replacing existing government or First Nations programs

Investing in First Nations in British Columbia to assist them in building their capacity.
