Training Events

Better Communities Through Strong Leadership.

The core of AFOA BC’s services revolve around our workshops and conferences. These events provide members with quality professional development, access to the latest tools and information, and invaluable networking opportunities. Further, all events and training are customized to meet the unique needs and perspectives of Aboriginal communities.
84% of all AFOA members have attended AFOA training and 65% have attended a workshop or conference in the last year.
We are proud of our services, and invite you to join us and our members as we move forward!


Our quarterly conferences are the ultimate networking opportunity, as they are province-wide and also open to other AFOA chapters.
