Infrastructure Institutions

The FMB is working with the Government of Canada and the other FMA organizations to explore using different revenues for borrowing under the First Nations Fiscal Management Act (FMA). This is to meet the huge need for on-reserve housing, roads, schools and other infrastructure building.

If new long-term capital funding agreements could be had between the Government of Canada and First Nations, this money could be used as security to borrow from the First Nations Finance Authority. This will allow more infrastructure projects to happen more quickly, which will create safer and healthier Nations.
