2011: Implementing the Vision – Reimagining First Nations Health in BC
This book is meant to provide the reader with an overview of where we have come from and where we are going in terms of the collective goal of the Tripartite First Nations Health Plan: to ensure First Nations are involved as equal partners in the planning and management of health services for our people. The work that BC First Nations are doing today will help us achieve that goal, and to ensure future generations have authority to enact policies, measure success, allocate resources, and establish service standards that are accountable to our communities. We need to work together to create healthy, strong, more vibrant communities now and in the future.
BC First Nations Perspectives on a New Health Governance Arrangement – Consensus Paper
Consensus Paper : British Columbia First Nations Perspectives on a New Health Governance Arrangement
May 26th, 2011 BC Chiefs and designates voted to adopt the Consensus Paper: British Columbia First Nations Perspectives on a New Health Governance Arrangement. The Consensus Paper was developed based on the feedback from five regional caucuses and Health Partnership Workbooks and articulates province-wide principles and advice for health governance. This paper brings together common elements from all five Regional Caucuses, and provides direction to the First Nations Health Council to move forward and work with BC and Canada to conclude a new First Nations Health governance structure. We are pleased to announce that the Consensus Paper and Resolution have been combined into one handy reference document.
Resolution 2011-01 Draft Workplan
On May 26th 2011, BC First Nations leaders passed a historic resolution to approve the transfer of First Nations health programs and services from federal control to First Nations control. Through Resolution 2011-01 and the “Consensus Paper: British Columbia First Nations Perspectives on a New Health Governance Arrangement,” First Nations provided clear direction on the standards of this new arrangement, and tasked the First Nations Health Council with clear next steps in implementation.
One of the immediate next steps that First Nations directed the First Nations Health Council to undertake was the development of a Resolution 2011-01 Workplan. This workplan is being provided to Regional Caucuses for review and feedback between September 27, 2011 and December 31st, 2011. This Workplan includes specific key activities clearly set out in the Resolution, such as: signing of the Framework Agreement; supporting the development of Regional Caucuses and Tables; and, establishing a strategy and approach for the conclusion of sub-agreements.

2012: Resolution 2012-01 Workplan
On May 24 2012, BC First Nations Chiefs passed a resolution in favour of a new First Nations health governance structure and the key ways in which BC First Nations will manage change in transitioning to this new health governance structure. Resolution 2012-01 adopted the “Consensus Paper 2012: Navigating the Currents of Change – Transitioning to a New First Nations Health Governance Structure.”
During Gathering Wisdom IV the Chiefs passed Resolution 2011-01 and directed the FNHC to develop a workplan for the Resolution 2011-01. This year First Nations again called on the FNHC to update and enhance the Resolution 2011-01 Workplan to include the action items set out in the Consensus Paper 2012 and the Resolution 2012-01. In fullfillment of that direction this workplan establishes an implementation plan for each of the follow-up activities identified in Resolution 2011-01 and Resolution 2012-01.
