Board and Committees
A board meeting held at Totem Hall, Squamish Nation in 2011.
Here’s a quick overview of the Fraser Basin Council Board and Committees. For current members, see: FBC Directors and FBC committees.
Fraser Basin Council Board
The FBC Board has 38 Directors — representatives from all orders of Canadian government within BC, together with people from the private sector and civil society, and an independent chair. This is a unique partnership of diverse interests, with all FBC Directors sharing a common focus: to advance sustainability.
There are 22 Directors from the four orders of government:
- three from the federal government
- three from the provincial government
- one from each of the eight regional districts in the Fraser Basin:
- Metro Vancouver
- Fraser Valley
- North Thompson Okanagan
- Fraser Fort George
- one from each of the Basin's eight major First Nations language groups:
- St át imcets
The remaining 16 Directors are non-governmental appointees of the Council:
- two from each of the Basin's five geographic regions (10 Directors in total), representing diverse sectors
- three Basin-wide Directors to reflect the three dimensions of sustainability (economic, social and environmental)
- a Director from among youth in the Basin
- a Director with experience in the finance sector
- a Chairperson.

- Operations Committee
