Templates for BC First Nations Funding Submissions
Funding is provided, and reported on, for each fiscal year - e.g., April 1, 2011 to March 31, 2012. The First Nation prepares and submits an internal workplan and budget for the new fiscal year, based on the initial allocation and the estimated amount carried forward unspent from the previous fiscal year. The First Nation Accounting Statement for the previous fiscal year is due and must be submitted to the Commission no later than mid-May. The audit of negotiation support funds for the previous fiscal year is due and must be submitted to the Commission by September 30th each year.
Below are links to templates, sample documents and instructions for First Nation funding submissions, accounting statements, and the annual audit report. The information in these reports is required to obtain funding or complete the reporting requirements on how the funding was spent. Placing these papers on-line should assist First Nations to submit the documents in a timely manner.
