Business Description

The First Nations Technology Council is an Indigenous-led, innovative non-profit that serves all First Nations across BC. We are mandated by First Nations Leadership. We work to advance digital literacy, improve internet connectivity and provide guidance on data and digital technology for all 204 First Nations across the province. Our work is driven by a vision where Indigenous people own, create, and utilize digital technologies in the exercise of their inherent rights and unique world views; and, where all Indigenous people equitably contribute to, participate in, and benefit from digital technologies.

 

Our Moving Beyond Inclusion (MBI) initiative is on a mission to change corporate structures by shifting the goal post from inclusion to creating transformational change and meaningful action-based advancements toward reconciliation in service of Indigenous people. We do this by working with industry to ensure that workplaces are safe, culturally aware, and are a welcoming space for Indigenous people to work, grow, and lead.

 

Cultural Awareness Training Course: 

Our new course, Bringing Into Balance: The Role of the Individual in Truth & Reconciliation, developed and offered in partnership with Chastity Davis-Alphonse, is an online, self-paced course where you have the opportunity to go on a journey and learn what meaningful allyship looks like and how it can be incorporated into your life and work. We start from the history of colonialization and demonstrate how colonial policies and values are ongoing and continue to impact Indigenous Peoples today. As a cohort, you will learn and discuss key concepts to move through the complex work of allyship and systems change.
