FBC Today

 Fraser River

Our Structure

The Fraser Basin Council is a charitable non-profit organization devoted to advancing sustainability solutions and practices in the Fraser Basin and across BC. The Council has 38 Directors: an impartial Chairperson and 37 other Directors who represent the four orders of government — federal, provincial, local and First Nations — as well as the private sector and civil society. This governance structure is one of the first of its kind and a reflection of FBC’s commitment to collaboration.

The FBC Directors set a strategic focus and policy for the Council and take into account principles of the Charter for Sustainability. Their decisions are by consensus.

The Board is supported by a team of over 30 full and part-time staff in regional FBC offices.

 

Vision

From the Charter for Sustainability  comes the Fraser Basin Council’s vision statement:


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


 

Mandate

With a history rooted in the Fraser Basin, FBC today also supports province-wide programs and initiatives in communities in other parts of BC. As reflected in our 2021-2026 Strategic Plan, the mandate of the Fraser Basin Council is:


 To advance sustainability solutions and practices in British Columbia


 

Strategic Priorities

The Fraser Basin Council’s 2021-2026 Strategic Plan focuses on three strategic priorities:

  • Build Sustainable and Resilient Communities
  • Take Action on Climate Change
  • Support Healthy Watersheds and Water Resources

 

Our Roles

Within the three strategic priority areas, the Fraser Basin Council serves in three key roles:

  • Facilitator and Strategic Convener
  • Educator
  • Program Manager

FBC frequently works with others on sustainability issues and initiatives, including flood management, climate change action and adaptation, air quality improvement, green transportation, healthy watersheds and community sustainability planning.

 

Our Vision

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