Treaty 8, Fort McMurray 468 First Nation (FMFN468) with its Industry & Government Relations Corporation (IGRC) is dedicated to playing an integral role in continual improvement of the social, cultural, and economic well-being of FMFN468.
As strong advocates of the community, we effectively steward and monitor the mutually beneficial agreements (MBAs) with Industry and all levels of Federal, Provincial and Municipal governments. IGRC works collaboratively with our partners to determine consultation and regulatory requirements and completeness. We also assess the impacts of development on FMFN468 traditional territory and promote the protection of rights and benefits accorded to FMFN468.
Our team bridges communication and engagement with the FMFN468 community on government and industry matters. IGRC serves as a one-window approach to engage the Nation on regulatory matters. The IGRC has a duty to provide the capacity for consultation, policy development, and program development in support of the community.
We strive to fulfill the expectation of the Nation to uphold regulatory certainty, compliance factors, land, community, environmental impacts, and mitigation strategies.
