​​​​​​​​​​​​About Our Reports

The FNHA is committed to a high standard of accountability and transparency, including reciprocal accountability with First Nations in BC and our Health Governance partners. Each year, we publish FNHA annual reports to demonstrate our progress and performance in implementing commitments outlined in our Summary Service Plan and to share our independently audited financial statements. We also publish Tripartite Health Plan reports.

2022/2023 Annual Report

The 2022/23 Annual Report describes the FNHA's progress on the goals, strategies and operational priorities outlined in the 2022/23 Summary Service Plan, Paddling Together: First Nations Health Authority Health and Wellness Plan. It highlights our work to advance systemic and transformative change in the health system, respond to community needs that have arisen in the last year and showcase the efforts and innovation of the five Regions who work tirelessly to support First Nations in BC.​

First Nations Health Benefits and Services Update​


“Looking back on the past year, we have leaned into our goal to enhance and transform access to quality health and wellness services…We are very proud of the work we're doing and will continue this transformational work alongside and in service of First Nations people and their families across the Province."

– John Mah, First Nations Health Benefits, Vice President

Public Health Response Update​


“As we reflect on the past year, I'm reminded of the remarkable efforts First Nations communities have made in preparing for and responding to public health related challenges. Whether that's an increase in climate change impacts to the land and water, the continued presence of COVID-19 or the toxic drug public health emergency - supporting the health and wellness of individuals, families and communities including members living away from home has never been more important."

– Katie Hughes, Public Health Response, Vice President 

Response to the Toxic Drug Crisis​


“This year is the eighth year since the Province declared the toxic drug crisis a public health emergency. Drug poisonings related to the toxic unregulated drug supply continues to take the lives of First Nations people in BC at five times the rate of non-First Nations people in the Province. Sorrow reverberates throughout our communities as the pain felt from every person lost to toxic drugs lives on in the families and friends left behind. We stand with and send out deepest condolences to all of those who have lost someone."

– Dr. Nel Wieman, Chief Medical Officer
