Questions and Answers

If you have any questions about this posting, please email

We are asking how satisfied the Nations we work with are with our engagement. In this context, the definition is how contented the Nations are with our meeting of expectations, needs, or demands of engagement.

Due to confidentiality agreements, we cannot release the entirety of the reports from previous surveys, but please see the attached PDF files for general trends and patterns from the surveys conducted in 2017 and 2019.

The use of “First Nation(s)” in this RFP refers to a single band or the plural First Nations for many bands in the areas where we work. Or, an Indigenous government, group or community. The Project will not be engaging with single, individual Indigenous peoples, but rather the collective governments (e.g. West Moberley First Nations, Kitselas First Nation, Wet’suwet’en First Nation).
