COVID-19 Information for Programs

March 16, 2020
PAGE UPDATED: March 27, 2020

The effects of COVID-19 have touched our own community just as it has touched so many people around the world. The health and safety of everyone involved in FPCC programs, communities, and especially our Elders, is of the utmost importance to us.

To support increasing measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 we are following the federal and provincial government recommendations to limit exposure through social distancing, restricted travel and postponing gatherings. 

FPCC is taking action to maintain our operations while also protecting those we serve. If your program involves in-person meetings or gatherings, we urge all grant recipients to follow the B.C. Centre for Disease Control recommendations to limit or cancel these activities. 

If your program or project completion deadline is approaching and you may be unable to complete because of COVID-19 restrictions, please be aware that we are doing our best to make accommodations and find flexible approaches.

We will continue to receive your final reports. We are assessing all FPCC programs to determine if it is possible to launch new programs and move forward with programs that are currently open on the website. The safety of people in communities is our top priority. We will be making these determinations on a case-by-case basis and communicating with you in the days to come.

We want to support you as best we can, so if you have any questions about your ability to complete a grant application or final report, please contact program staff by email. Program contacts: click here.

FPCC will be postponing the following upcoming events and training sessions:
  • Community outreach
  • In-person meetings
  • Mentor-Apprentice training sessions
  • Digitization training sessions 
  • Indigenous Music Retreat
We are working with our funders to determine the best course of action for people who are currently involved in programs/grants funded by FPCC.

Our thoughts go out to everyone who has been affected by this virus and disruptions to daily life. We know that your work is incredibly important and we will be here to support any questions or concerns you have about how this will affect your program or grant applications. If you have questions specific to your program, please contact program staff by email. Program contacts: click here.

We want to ensure that everyone is able to focus on staying safe and healthy. Please check our website for future updates.
