The FMB's Certifications are based on international finance and governance standards and adapted to meet the needs of First Nations. Other certifications like ISO are not specific to First Nations.

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

Take a look at the benefits that your First Nation could have by becoming certified with the FMB.
