In 2014, the FMB was asked by a group of First Nations in northern British Columbia for support to make decisions on possible major projects affecting their traditional lands.
The FMB assisted these Nations in finding financing options for major projects and becoming better equipped to make informed business decisions concerning major projects.
From 2014-2016, the First Nations Major Projects Coalition (MPC) was created as a separate organization from the FMB to provide this support. The MPC is a non-political, business-focused organization developed by First Nations for First Nations.
Participation in the Coalition is optional and access to information and services are provided at no cost to First Nations. There are thirty-five Nations now participating in the MPC.
