The anpBC Strategy is an action plan for strengthening the workforce in the Aboriginal non-profit (ANP) sector. In this section of the website, you will find the results of research completed during Phase One of the Strategy and an overview of the projects that comprised Phase Two.
The anpBC Strategy is the result of two historic gatherings that brought together leaders of ANP organizations from across BC to discuss shared HR issues and explore opportunities to strengthen the ANP workforce. These gatherings, held in Vancouver in 2010 and 2011, marked the first time ANP agencies in BC came together as a cohesive sector to begin developing a collective response to shared challenges and opportunities. Out of these gatherings emerged an empowering sense of potential to strengthen all ANP organizations by building a unified voice and vision. Four key workplace issues requiring immediate attention were identified: culture and traditional values; wellness and balance; mentorship and professional development; and pensions and benefits.
Thus, the anpBC Strategy was born.
