Ference & Company is one of the largest consulting firms in Canada undertaking work for Indigenous governments, organizations, and peoples across Canada. Over the last 38 years, we have partnered with Indigenous peoples on over 100 projects including program evaluations, feasibility studies, business plans, strategic plans and economic development strategies. We utilize a participatory and culturally responsive approach that promotes strength-based methods as well as cultural safety and humility. Our team is committed to supporting the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action as well as the First Nations principles of OCAPTM (ownership, control, access, and possession).
In a recent project, we collaborated with the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) to evaluate the British Columbia Tripartite Framework Agreement on First Nation Health Governance as well as the five regional Partnership Accords. We were honoured to be a part of this historic project and look forward to seeing self-governance flourish in not only healthcare, but across the social determinants of health.
