The First Nations Technology Council is an organization in BC whose aim is to promote the use of technology to unite, revitalize and empower First Nations communities within BC. The organization believes that technology will assist in the preservation of language and culture, enhance community connections between Aboriginal people, and provide new opportunities for jobs and economic development. In addition, the council mines data in both health and educational services for Aboriginal community members.
The Technology Council also works with communities in building a a unique Community Technology Plan which is to assist in the development of sustainable technology solutions. “The Technology Council will help take the guess work out of determining short, mid and long terms goals and will be a trusted ally in your implementation of digital technologies, no matter how big or small!”. The Technology Council also supports digital skills training for those community members wishing to advance their skills.
