BC Capacity Initiative



October 2015

November 2015


The BC Capacity Initiative (BCCI) is a federal government initiative funded by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC). The BCCI focuses on enhancing First Nations' abilities to prepare for comprehensive land claim negotiations by increasing First Nations' capabilities to negotiate, implement or manage land and resource components of their future aboriginal title settlement agreements.

All BC First Nations with an unresolved land claim are eligible to apply for funding. This includes First Nations both within and outside the BCTC process. Applications for funding may be made on behalf of a First Nation by its band office, tribal council, or representative First Nation organization.
