Information gathered from this and other surveys conducted by the FNTC will be compiled into a FNTC database and used only to develop FNTC programs and services that will be designed to improve cultural, land and marine resource information management in First Nations communities. Official representatives from any First Nation may request any information about their community that the FNTC has. A report, based on non-identifiable data from this survey, will be produced and made available publicly in digital format and hardcopy format upon request.
