BC CAPACITY INITIATIVE
CALL FOR PROPOSALS 2018-2019

This is a call for proposal for First Nations organizations to apply for 2018-2019 project funding under the BC Capacity Initiative (BCCI).

The BCCI is committed to supporting First Nations to enhance their capacity to prepare for consultation, negotiation, implementation or management of land and resources components of future aboriginal title settlement agreements. BCCI will be in its 19th year of operation. The initiative remains guided by the principles that:

  • First Nations communities should control their capacity building
  • Capacity building should be driven by the First Nation's vision of where it wants to be in the future
  • Capacity building should enhance First Nations' independence and interdependence
  • Mutually beneficial partnerships with non-First Nation organizations are an element of capacity building

Please take the time to review the BCCI 2018-2019 Proposal Guidelines to help you prepare your proposal (available only at the BCCI website, www.bccapacity.org). BCCI funding supports only land and resource activities related to First Nation' unsettled land claims. The guide is filled with specific examples, notes on the BCCI screening criteria and helpful hints. It is very important that your proposal includes clear deliverables. The budget must reflect the costs of the activities needed to achieve the deliverables.

The BCCI Proposal form, PAW 5702745, can be downloaded from http://www.aadnc-aandc.gc.ca/eng/1386610826543/1386610899912, under the 2018-2019, "Acts, Agreements, and Treaties" section. This form is also available at the BCCI website along with the 2018-2019 Proposal Guidelines.

Proposals will be accepted until 4:30 PM Monday, December 11, 2017. Email your completed proposal application and all required support documents to BCmail@aandc.gc.ca.

If you do not receive an immediate automated email confirmation after submitting your application, or need further assistance or information, please contact the BCCI Secretariat at BCCDcapacity@aandc.gc.ca.

Thank you for your interest in the BC Capacity Initiative.
