The Fall intake for the 2015/16 Regional Community to Community (C2C) Forum is now open. First Nations and local governments may apply for up to $5,000 in matching funds to bring together elected officials from neighbouring communities to discuss common goals and pursue opportunities for joint action.
The goal of the C2C program is increased understanding and improved overall relations between First Nations and local governments advanced by tangible outcomes.
C2C Forum events take many forms. Possible dialogue topics include relationship building, reconciliation, economic development, infrastructure planning, land use and resources, community development and service delivery.
