About the UBCIC

The Union of BC Indian Chiefs (UBCIC) is a not-for-profit organization representing and taking direction from over 100 Indigenous Nations in BC. Our mandate is to work toward the recognition, implementation, and exercise of our inherent Title, Rights, and Treaty Rights, and to protect our lands, waters, and resources through the exercise of our own laws and jurisdiction. We believe, despite out differences, we will be stronger if we work together. The UBCIC works collectively amongst Indigenous Nations in B.C. as an advocacy body to provide a cohesive voice (regionally, nationally, and internationally) in support of Indigenous Nations and communities, and to promote and protect each Nation’s exercise of Sovereignty within their traditional territories. For more information, please visit www.ubcic.bc.ca.

We are comprised of a research department, working to support First Nations to obtain justice in the resolution of their specific claims, and a policy department which actively works to bring forth positive change in Canadian and international policy towards First Nations communities. By joining UBCIC you will play an essential role in our busy political organization. You will have opportunities for practical, on-the-job learning and engagement with a wide network of Indigenous Nations, organizations, and other partners.
