The First Citizens Fund, a perpetual fund created in 1969, is available for cultural, educational and economic development for Aboriginal people in British Columbia.
In 2001, the Government of British Columbia doubled the net value of the Fund from $36 million to $72 million. Interest earned from Fund investments supports programs and services for Aboriginal people.
All programs and services are managed and delivered in partnership with British Columbia Aboriginal organizations.
The First Citizens Fund is part of the provincial government's commitment to improve the quality of life for Aboriginal people.
