The Advisory Committee of the Aboriginal Non-Profit (ANP) sector of British Columbia is excited to begin Phase Two of an anpBC Strategy with the release of five Request for Proposals

The Advisory Committee of the Aboriginal Non-Profit (ANP) sector of British Columbia is excited to begin Phase Two of an anpBC Strategy with the release of five Request for Proposals.  The Aboriginal Non-Profit (ANP) Sector is a collective of hundreds of Aboriginal non-profit organizations across British Columbia undertaking work in the areas of housing, employment, drug and alcohol treatment, health, and child and family services.

The anpBC Strategy aims to build and support a strong ANP workforce so that organizations can continue to assist, heal, and strengthen Aboriginal communities now and into the future.  From 2012 to 2014, community researchers worked with the ANP sector to help build the strategy by exploring how a culturally-grounded, healthy, and robust workforce could be created and sustained. Phase Two of the strategy will focus on the implementation of many of the recommendations and suggested activities from Phase One. Specifically, Phase Two will focus on the implementation of five new projects, and we are now seeking proposals from interested proponents to carry out this work. Please see below for a listing of the five new projects and the linked Request for Proposals for each project.

1. Creation of sector tools to support mentorship and Elder guidance in ANP agencies and sector tools to support the recruitment and retention of Aboriginal youth in ANP agencies

2. Development of culture and wellness plans with ANP agencies

3. Development of a sector pension plan package for use in ANP agencies and a phased plan for promotion of package to ANP agencies

4. Creation of a curriculum to support a holistic approach to retirement planning and “financial living as an Elder” for ANP employees and further research on how the ANP sector can culturally support their employees as they become Elders

5. Creation of materials and activities that promote the ANP sector to potential career changers who have a high level of existing qualifications and experience and the creation of materials and activities that promote the ANP sector to Aboriginal youth
