About Us

The British Columbia First Nations Energy and Mining Council (FNEMC) was established in 2006 by BC First Nations leaders.
The Chiefs of the First Nations Summit (FNS), Union of BC Indian Chiefs (UBCIC) and BC Assembly of First Nations (BCAFN) passed resolutions to develop a BC First Nations Energy Action Plan (2007) and BC First Nations Mineral Exploration and Mining Plan (2008).

Action Plans
