First Nations/Local Government Partnerships
In British Columbia and across Canada, there are numerous examples of successful joint ventures between First Nations, local governments, and non-indigenous companies and organizations.
It isn't always easy. Cultural and political differences can sometimes make positive collaboration difficult. But the difficulties can be overcome, and when they are, good things can happen for all concerned. Our aim here is to highlight and showcase successful First Nation economic collaboration with non-Native partners.
Successful partners know one another. Understanding and respecting First Nations cultures and rights is a crucial first step for non-Native governments and businesses wanting to work with First Nations.
Each person has an important role to play in reconciliation. Reconciliation begins with oneself and then extends into our families, relationships, workplaces, and communities.
