C2C Forum Program


The Ministry supports the Community to Community (C2C) Forum Program by providing funds to the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) to help administer the program. The program provides funding for local government and First Nations elected officials to jointly host forums to discuss issues, challenges and opportunities to work together.

To date, the C2C Forum Program has funded more than 170 local forums and three province-wide forums – involving more than 130 local governments and almost 200 First Nations and tribal councils. Communities that have held forums are supportive of the program. The insights and experience of forum organizers are contained in the Guide to Community to Community Forums in British Columbia (551 KB).

The C2C Forum Program is jointly administered by the UBCM and the First Nations Summit, which also receives funding from Indian and Northern Affairs Canada for the program costs. Information on how to apply for funding is available through the UBCM and the First Nations Summit C2C application form (195 KB).

The C2C Connect Newsletter is a co-publication of the First Nations Summit and the UBCM. The newsletter features stories of First Nations and local governments working together.
