Naut'sa mawt Tribal Council Technical Services Unit invites you to attend

Community Infrastructure Services Planning – Tangible Capital Assets

Thursday, February 6th, 2020  8:30 AM - 4:00 PM 
Coast Bastion Hotel, Nanaimo, BC 

Breakfast provided at 8:15 

Lunch provided

As the next step in Community Infrastructure Services Planning, this working session will focus on Financial Administration Laws and Tangible Capital Asset Management for your communities. You will need to understand and implement these to qualify for 10-year ISC funding agreements, to be certified by the First Nations Financial Management Board to borrow money for infrastructure or other projects, and to develop well-functioning and sustainable infrastructure services for your communities.

Who Should Attend:

Leadership, Chief Administrative Officers, Public Works and Finance Managers and Staff


Why Should we go:

As a key outcome of the working session, we want each member to go away with something useful to help you to deal with these issues now in your community.


We also want to identify and get commitments on how we can make things easier for everyone by working together on issues and gaps as a group.

What will we do:

By attending this workshop, you can expect to develop a better understanding of:

  • Financial Administration Laws (FALs) and how they impact your organizational practices, procedures and capacity

  • Necessary linkages between FALs, Tangible Capital Asset accounting, Asset Management, Operations and Maintenance, and Capital Planning – including what these mean, why they are important, and how and where the CIS Plan addresses them

  • How to determine the funding you will need to sustain your community’s infrastructure services, and how to address funding gaps

  • How to understand and prepare for the new 10-year plan process – and potential pitfalls to avoid

How do we register:

Please let Dale Komanchuk know if you would like to attend by emailing or you can call me at 604-239-9880 if you would like more information.
