The First Nations Fisheries Council of BC welcomes you! The Council was formed in 2007 by BC First Nations as an outcome of the BC First Nations Fisheries Action Plan, which was endorsed in 2006 by resolution by the BC Assembly of First Nations, the Union of BC Indian Chiefs, and First Nations Summit. The Council has 14 delegates from different regions throughout BC, representing the diversity of expertise, priorities, fisheries and ecosystems across the province. The Council works to implement the First Nations Fisheries Action Plan, which serves as a foundation for First Nations to seek increasing shares in the BC fishery and greater involvement in fisheries management and decision making. We work with BC First Nations to protect, reconcile and advance Aboriginal Title and Rights and Treaty Rights related to the health and conservation of fish and aquatic resources and fisheries access for food, social, cultural and economic purposes.
