Launch of RoadMap – a Pathway Toward Economic Reconciliation
Launch of RoadMap – a pathway toward economic reconciliation
November 24, 2022
OTTAWA – The First Nations Financial Management Board (FMB) will launch a practical and optional framework to advance Indigenous economic reconciliation on Nov. 29 in Ottawa. RoadMap offers realistic and implementable options to empower First Nations governments to move past the failed one-size-fits-all approach. The RoadMap Project supports the implementation of the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), through Indigenous-led initiatives.
The RoadMap Project will empower:
- Informed policy decisions supported by statistics and data
- Better infrastructure though institutional support and improved access to capital
- Economic reconciliation through strong Indigenous economies
- Greater self-sufficiency through options to expand First Nations jurisdiction and fiscal powers
- Economies of scale and improved service delivery through First Nations working together
- Strengthened governance through capacity development and support from Indigenous Institutions
The First Nations Fiscal Management Act (FMA) institutions are the driving force behind this project. The FMA institutions have a proven track record of supporting First Nations as they grow their economies and enhance their financial and administrative governance.
