Climate change threatens the security and way of life of Indigenous peoples throughout Canada and the world.

The Chiefs in BC have mandated the First Nations Leadership Council through Resolutions  (BCAFN Resolution no. 04/2019 Climate Emergency and Support for the Development of a BC First Nations Climate Change Strategy, and UBCIC Resolution no. 2019-02 Climate Emergency and BC First Nations Climate Emergency Plan) to take action on the climate emergency, including working with First Nations to prepare a draft Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan.

Why this survey?

The purpose of the survey is to identify First Nations' perspectives on the climate emergency, and related impacts, concerns, barriers and priorities.
The data gained from this survey will be used by FNLC technical staff to inform the development of a draft First Nations Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan. The draft will be sent to all First Nation Chief & Councils for their review and community input for subsequent approval.

This survey is confidential, voluntary and anonymous; no names will be used in the final report. 

This survey will take you approximately 30 minutes.
