This Handbook was prepared by the First Nations Education Steering Committee (FNESC) and
First Nations Schools Association (FNSA to describe the implementation of the First Nations
Language and Culture Program (FNLCP) for First Nations schools in BC. The document includes
the principles guiding the program, as well as information about how the FNLCP funding is
allocated to First Nations schools and also used to support collective-level programs and
services that are provided by the FNSA and FNESC.
