Policies and Guidelines

As part of the New Fiscal Relationship work between the Government of Canada and the Assembly of First Nations, the FMB was invited to co-develop the eligibility criteria for 10-year grants.

As part of a Memorandum of Understanding dated November 6, 2018 between the FMB, the Minister of Indigenous Services, and the Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations, the FMB’s role was set to evaluate whether a First Nation government that expresses interest in a 10-year grant meets the eligibility criteria.

The document below contains the FMB’s Policies and Guidelines used to do this work. The final decision on whether a grant is offered to a First Nation government remains with Indigenous Services Canada.
