Northwest Inter-Nation Family and Community Services Society

Working Towards a Brighter Future


Northwest Inter-Nation Family & Community Services Society "NIFCS" is a Delegated Aboriginal Agency that provides family support, guardianship and caregiver services to seven First Nations communities in the Northwest region of British Columbia. NIFCS knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. NIFCS is guided by cultural knowledge, values and wisdom and supported with strategic governance by a First Nations board of directors, representing each community.

About Us


NIFCS is directly mandated by the member nations to safeguard the inherent right of our children to thrive in a safe and healthy environment and strengthen cultural identities and family unity. As such NIFCS offers a variety of support services and programs, from advocacy to direct family and community based support, to respond to the identified need and partner with the family, extended family and community to strengthen the family’s wellness to care for and nurture their children in the best way possible.
