The AFAC Board of Directors works to achieve the following objectives:
- Utilize Indigenous collaboration in all components of the development and design of the NIFSC Project.
- Create a sustainable funding model to ensure the NIFSC Project is viable into the future.
- Collaborate with National Indigenous Organizations.
Create a formal organization that has the security of government support.
- Transition the NIFSC Project portfolio from Indigenous Services Canada to Public Safety Canada.
Establish a sustainable and effective Indigenous governance structure.
- Ensure the NIFSC Project is free of political interference and able to pursue a meaningful Indigenous public safety agenda.
The National Advisory Committee (NAC) helps us to maintain an inclusive approach that meets the needs of all Indigenous communities, by providing advice on the project as it evolves.
The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) gives technical advice on the development and delivery of fire safety programs. The TAC brings together a wide range of education, experience, and expertise to share best practices and solve common issues. This committee allows for Indigenous fire safety experts to guide NIFSC programs. There is an open invitation to all regional technical organizations to participate in the TAC.
