Building governance capacity helps First Nations and their communities move successfully toward independence and self governance.
New Relationship Trust (NRT) has amalgamated Direct Support, Nation Governance, and Tribal Council Policy into a new Nation Building initiative. This new initiative will provide First Nations and Tribal Councils in British Columbia with access to a unified funding program to serve their capacity development needs.
Additional Capacity support is being used to develop tools and resources that will benefit all First Nation communities. Specifically, in partnership with the First Nations Technology Council:
- NRT has partnered with the First Nations Technology Council to develop the First Nations in BC Knowledge Network for sharing capacity tools, resources, and networking. This initiative is available at: www.fnbc.info
- NRT has developed best practice studies for Governance, Consultation & Accommodation, Comprehensive Community Planning, Land Use Planning, and Environmental Assessments. View Best Practice Reports.
