About the First Nations Technology Council

Leading the Advancement of Digital Technologies in First Nations Communities.


The First Nations Technology Council was mandated in 2002 to ensure that all 203 First Nations communities in BC have access to the Internet and the capacity to utilize digital technologies to the fullest potential.

In our 14 years of operation, the Technology Council has worked in partnership with over 150 First Nations communities in BC to deliver onsite technology related training. Through this, we have gained critical insight into the need for improved connectivity, a sustainable approach to infrastructure and the need to build digital skills capacity.

In addition to advancing personal, professional and academic goals, digital technologies also allow us to advance our efforts locally, regionally, provincially and nationally in Aboriginal Rights and Title, jurisdiction and self-determination.
