BC CAPACITY INITIATIVE
CALL FOR PROPOSALS 2017-2018

This is a call for proposal for First Nations organizations to apply for 2017-2018 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 18th 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’s 2017-2018 Proposal Guidelines to help you prepare your proposal. BCCI funding supports only land and resource activities related to First Nations’ unsettled land claims. The guide is filled with specific examples, notes on the BCCI screening criteria and helpful hints.

To obtain the BCCI Proposal Application Package, please visit our website at, www.bccapacity.org, and download the following documents for proposal submission application (all of which have been revised since last call):

  • Guidelines (PDF)
  • Application (PAW 5702745; PDF)

Applications will be accepted until 4:30 PM Monday, December 5, 2016. 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 or call (604) 396-6420.

PLEASE NOTE:

The Treasury Board Authority for this program is under review. The status of the review and/or renewal is not known at this time. However, the call will proceed with the anticipation that it will be renewed and the proposal review process for 2017-2018 fiscal year will continue. Information on the review/renewal will be posted on the BCCI website when we are notified of the status.

Thank you for your interest in the BC Capacity Initiative.
