Mission

Our Mission is to support BC First Nations individuals, communities and enterprises in achieving the highest standard of occupational health, safety and environmental management by building internal capacity to manage sustainable step-change in occupational health, safety and environmental oversight. 

We will accomplish this by:

  • Promoting sustainable step-change while honouring traditions and cultures;
  • Developing a competent and confident workforce where workers are well trained and empowered to complete work in a safe and healthy manner;
  • Ensuring Companies operating on First Nation’s land have functioning safety programs and policies that meet and exceed regulatory requirements and that they are accountable to operational oversight by the FNSC members;
  • Establishing relationships with industry, governments, educational institutions and other associations to support research and develop strategic action plans addressing First Nations concerns specific to occupational safety and health.
