Assessing Governance Capacity
BC First Nations show overwhelming interest in Governance Capacity Assessments
BRITISH COLUMBIA REGION - The National Centre for First Nations Governance is pleased to announce that over 30 Expressions of Interest (EOI) applications have been received from First Nation and Tribal Nations throughout British Columbia.
The EOI sought applications to conduct a Governance Capacity Assessment (GCA) which will evaluate current governance capacity with the objective of identifying strategic steps that can be taken to advance the selected communities governance objectives.
Of the more than 30 applications, ten will be selected. The NCFNG will make the selection so that there is a broad range of governance experience reflected in the findings.
All assessments are expected to be complete by the end of March 2008. Shortly thereafter, a report of aggregated findings and recommendations will be made public.
The Centre would like to thank its partner in BC, The New Relationship Trust as well as all of the First Nations that applied.
The Governance Capacity Assessment will be rolled-out as a national offering of NCFNG in the near future.
