The First Nations in BC Knowledge Network is a hub for First Nations in the province to share ideas, tools and best practices on many aspects of governance and community development.
The First Nations in BC Knowledge Network was developed by the First Nations Technology Council with the generous support from the New Relationship Trust and the valued input of many organizations and First Nations in BC.
The Technology Council's vision is for the First Nations in BC Knowledge Network to be an accessible and engaging platform that fosters the sharing of knowledge and facilitates networking amongst First Nations individuals, communities and organizations.
The site scaffolds the ideas from many communities into a network that all communities can learn from and build upon. This knowledge exchange supports First Nations because resources such as documents and templates can be learnt from, customized and adapted to meet individual community needs.
The goal of the Knowledge Network is to be a platform that leverages the knowledge and experience of First Nations along with the openness and speed of the internet to organize the brightest ideas and best practices around the continuous act of building and growing Nations.

About the logo: “Transformation”
The trout head in the centre symbolizes our initial being, who we are and where we come from. The bird emerging on the top left and the mammal on the right, both not fully defined, leaving our imagination to interpret how we see them in their final stages.
As we go through life, everything around us transforms from one thing to another including us, with no final vision of who we will be - this is what “Transformation” embodies.
