The BC First Nations Early Childhood Development Council (FNECDC)
The BC First Nations Early Childhood Development Council (FNECDC) was created in 2007 when stakeholders discussed the development of a provincial BC First Nations ECD Agenda and Action Plan aimed at improving the well-being of First Nations children from prenatal to six years.
