PURPOSE WITH A PASSION  

The First Peoples’ Cultural Council (FPCC) is a First Nations-led Crown Corporation that provides grants, training, coaching and resources to communities.   

We are a team of Indigenous people and allies, working together in pursuit of a vision where First Nations languages, arts and cultures are thriving and passed on to future generations. While we place a priority on Indigenous hires, we have a number of non-Indigenous staff at FPCC and we welcome allies who believe in reconciliation and want to make this country a better place. We conduct research to monitor the vitality of First Nations languages, arts and cultures and are honoured to work alongside community experts who are leading revitalization efforts.  

We offer an open and collaborative work environment guided by Indigenous values and we are seeking people with a passion for arts, heritage, language and technology to join our team. If you are committed to making a difference for First Nations people and want to be a part of a dynamic and progressive organization, we encourage you to apply! 

FLEXIBLE WORK ENVIRONMENT  

FPCC is grateful to have our home in the beautiful traditional unceded territory of the W̱SÁNEĆ Nation people, in the village of W̱JOȽEȽP. We have a satellite office at Tk’emlups within the traditional territory of the Secwepemc people. Most staff live in the greater Victoria region, but some live in communities like Shawnigan Lake and Duncan and travel to the office by ferry.   

We currently work remotely due to COVID-19 but anticipate a return to the office with options for remote work to continue for some positions. If you are qualified for an employment opportunity with us but in-person work may pose a challenge, please let us know. FPCC provides all the technologies required for remote work.  

STRONG TEAM CULTURE  

Our main office is a new, modern space that features Indigenous art from across B.C. It offers an open floor plan that supports natural sharing and collaboration. There is a large boardroom, private spaces for meetings and phone calls and a conversation pod for informal chats.  

We work hard, but we have fun too. In our beautiful W̱JOȽEȽP office we often gather at lunch to try our hand at beading or solving crossword puzzles together. Some take noon walks to enjoy the view of Brentwood Bay, while others head to a local eatery or picnic outside in the summer months.  

 COMPETITIVE BENEFITS   

FPCC places a high priority on the health and well-being of our staff. We offer a competitive employment benefits package that supports employees at all stages of life and includes extended health and dental benefits, maternity leave, parental leave and access to the BC Government defined-benefit pension plan. And yes, massage therapy and acupuncture are covered!  

FPCC is also committed to training, professional development and cultural supports, including: 

  • Professional memberships and development opportunities  
  • Access to coaching and mentorship 
  • Time off for cultural observances and activities 

Over the past year, we have benefited from our Knowledge Keepers series where Indigenous thought leaders share their wisdom. Speakers have included J,SINTEN John Elliott, filmmaker Loretta Todd, Senator Yvonne Boyer, Dr. John Borrows and archeologist Dr. Kisha Supernant.
