Careers at FNIGC
The First Nations Information Governance Centre (FNIGC) envisions that every First Nation will achieve data sovereignty in alignment with its distinct worldview. An incorporated First Nations non-profit organization based in Akwesasne, Ontario, is committed to improving the health and well-being of people living in our 634 First Nations reserve and Northern communities across the country.
We achieve this in a number of ways. In addition to serving the information, research, training and capacity development needs of First Nations people and communities, FNIGC is home to the First Nations Regional Health Survey (FNRHS), the First Nations Regional Early Childhood, Education and Employment Survey (FNREEES) and the First Nations Labour and Employment Development (FNLED) survey.
FNIGC recognizes that real change can come through sound policy-making, but only if it’s supported by quality information — information that is collected by First Nations people, for First Nations people.
Though our national team proudly employs both First Nations and non-First Nations people, FNIGC is a First Nations entity that promotes and supports the preferential treatment of First Nations in decisions on employment matters such as hiring, promotion and training. This may also include measures such as opening competitions only to First Nations. That being the case, we encourage everyone to apply for our positions.
