Representatives

The FNHC is regionally-driven by a 15-person Council — three representatives from each region in BC. Each region determines its own selection process including length of term and appointment procedures for representatives.

Representatives

The FNHC has established two Working Groups to provide focused leadership on implementation of its Strategic Plan. The Engagement and Transformation Working Group provides on-the-ground engagement and capacity building support to communities and the Partnership Working Group provides advocacy and leadership in practices of good governance.
