A Message from the First Nations Housing & Infrastructure Council (FNHIC-BC)
May 2, 2020
The continued spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Canada and around the world has understandably raised concerns about public health and safety. The threat posed to First Nations’ communities throughout Canada is of high concern and the FNHIC
continues to monitor this rapidly developing situation.
Staff at FNHIC continue to work remotely and like all of you, are taking the necessary steps to protect one another and their family during this pandemic.
The pandemic has impacted the FNHICs’ ability to move forward with a number of planned activities including the postponement of our 2020 Forum and Face-to-Face community engagement sessions. FNHIC is having to adapt like everyone else, looking at innovative and online tools to facilitate the engagement sessions with First Nation communities as well as communicate with the various levels of government. All of these efforts are focused on moving towards creating a First Nations Housing and
Infrastructure Authority in BC. We will continue to update Leadership and the First Nation community at large as the situation evolves and we appreciate your patience and understanding during this
incredibly difficult time.
Stay safe and take care of one another.
