The Aboriginal Child Care Society (ACCS) was contracted by the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) to facilitate the second round of consultations in the BC Region. The meeting materials and the facilitation plan were guided by materials and plans developed by the AFN, in collaboration with the ELCC Advisory Committee, which includes the relevant Federal Departments. The two-day consultation session was facilitated by an independent facilitator, according to the agreed-upon facilitation plan. The report was written by an independent writer and contains a summary of the input provided by participants, and from participant workbooks submitted at and subsequent to the meeting. The full minutes of the sessions, and the flip-charts of the discussion groups, are attached to the report. Participants had very limited opportunities to comment on the report due to time frames established by the Federal Government. Regional reports will be rolled up by the AFN into a national report.
