At First Nations, the safety of our community partners is paramount. In light of the risk COVID-19 continues to present for Native communities, First Nations is postponing or cancelling all in-person meetings or gatherings hosted by First Nations. The policy applies to all First Nations’ mid- to large-size gatherings that bring together attendees from different communities or that require travel through multiple airports and cities. All First Nations events will be held virtually until we can safely and responsibly come together. We ask for understanding as we take active steps to ensure our partners, friends, and allies in Native communities stay safe.Stay informed of updates
