Why work with the FMB?

Every forward-looking First Nation needs these three things:

  1. A way to borrow and make money
  2. A community that runs smoothly
  3. A long-term community plan

The First Nations Financial Management Board (FMB) supports your First Nation in setting up the governance and finance practices that make these things possible. You choose which services you want to use, and we work to your timetable. You are in control at all times.

Take a look at the benefits of working with the FMB for your First Nation.
