The Council’s mandate is to lead the finalization and implementation of the Indigenous Child at the Centre Action Plan. The Action Plan sets out a collective BC First Nations approach to improving the well-being of First Nations children and was adopted by resolution at the BC Assembly of First Nations, First Nations Summit, and Union of BC Indian Chiefs.

The Action Plan has been revised and is currently being reviewed for input by Chiefs and Leadership in BC. The Action Plan was presented for final review at the Indigenous Child at the Centre Forum VI. Feedback will be incorporated and the final Action Plan will be presented at the First Nations Leadership Council Meetings in Winter 2013.

The Action Plan now includes 5 goals:

  • To support First Nations governance and Nation-building.
  • To create space for First Nations to be successful in their work through the future development of relationships with governments.
  • To acquire appropriate financial resources and build human resource capacity.
  • To build effective relationships amongst First Nations and First Nations organizations.
  • To enable information, data development and sharing.
