Floodplain Mapping Projects

BC Floodplain mapping projects

The Province of BC is seeking to create high-quality floodplain maps for BC communities that are exposed to riverine, lakeshore and/or coastal flood hazards. The new floodplain mapping initiative is managed by FBC on behalf of the Province and at the direction of project committees.

Learn about the areas being mapped.

New! Energy Efficiency Mentorship

In-person training session

Do you have an interest in training on energy-efficient housing? Check out the 2023 Energy Efficiency Mentorship Program! It’s a good fit for both Indigenous building specialists ready to extend their skills and those newer to the housing field. Take a look!

Clinton Wildfire Resiliency Plan

Clinton CWRP reports

In March 2023 the Village of Clinton and Thompson-Nicola Regional District completed a Community Wildfire Resiliency Plan (CWRP) for the Village of Clinton and a large area of TNRD Electoral Area E (Jesmond, Big Bar Lake, Meadow Lake, Chasm, Loon Lake).

Find the report and maps on the Clinton & Area Community Wildfire Roundtable page. Facilitated by FBC, the Roundtable supports the coordination and communication of organizations responsible for wildfire preparedness and risk reduction in the region, with involvement of local government, First Nations, volunteer fire departments, fire brigades, ranchers and others in the forest industry.

Renewable Energy & Remote Communities

Solar system - Kwadacha Nation

Kwadacha Nation has advanced clean energy for their remote community — 500+ km north of Prince George — with a new solar photovoltaic system on the rooftop of Aatse Davie School. The system now produces clean energy to directly power the school, which cuts fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions and saves money. Other important benefits: this clean energy transition reduces air pollution and noise pollution from diesel power generation.

New! Realizing UNDRIP Initiative

Realizing UNDRIP Initiative

How can Indigenous and non-Indigenous people work together in a good way? The Realizing UNDRIP Initiative educates and inspires non-Indigenous people working in government and in the private and not-for-profit sectors on positive ways forward. Through success stories, resources and learning events, the initiative brings insights on building strong Indigenous–non-Indigenous relationships that are essential to meaningful progress on reconciliation and sustainability.

Visit the new Realizing UNDRIP website.

EPIC Network

EPIC - Energy Peers in Indigenous Communities

The Energy Peers in Indigenous Communities (EPIC) Network is a program to build capacity, knowledge and skills related to renewable energy in Indigenous communities in British Columbia. Funding for the program was announced December 8 by Natural Resources Canada (see media release).

The EPIC Network program supports a cohort of participants (called Community Energy Champions) with a peer-to-peer cohort and peer mentorship approach to building and sharing knowledge, networking and engagement, skills development and training on renewable energy. BC First Nations communities are invited to reach out to learn about the Network.

Visit the EPIC page for more details.

Thanks to the partners in the initiative for their strategic guidance, oversight and support: New Relationships Trust; Natural Resources Canada’s Smart Renewables and Electrification Pathways Program; Province of BC, Ministry of Energy, Mines, and Low Carbon Innovation; BC Hydro and FortisBC






Our Vision

Social well-being supported by a vibrant economy and sustained by a healthy environment.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
