In your community

​We believe in staying connected to the communities we serve. The FortisBC Community Relations team supports the unique needs and strengths of your community. We do that by meeting, listening, talking and working together.

Annual B.C. Elders Gathering

In 2013, FortisBC is assisting some First Nation communities (including the Nicola Tribal Association, the Penticton Indian Band, and the Lower Similkameen Indian Band) to send their elders to the 37th annual B.C. Elders Gathering in Prince George.

The gathering provides an opportunity for Aboriginal elders to connect with communities throughout the province, and for others to gain perspective on how other First Nations live.

David Thompson Columbia River Canoe Brigade

In 2011, FortisBC employees proudly participated in and sponsored the Ktunaxa Nation’s entry into the David Thompson Columbia River Canoe Brigade. From Canal Flats to Fort Steele in southeastern B.C., employees paddled 100 kilometres alongside Ktunaxa community members, council and chiefs.  As part of the company’s sponsorship, we contributed to the construction of a new voyager canoe which is now being used by a Ktunaxa children’s camp in the East Kootenays.

Peachfest Aboriginal Cultural Village and Pow Wow

We proudly provide sponsorship for the Penticton Indian Band’s annual Cultural Village and Pow Wow at Penticton’s Peachfest.  Beginning in 2008, this event has expanded from a welcoming ceremony to a full two days of showcasing Aboriginal arts, music, food and dance.


Working in Ahousaht, located on Flores Island, off the coast of Tofino, FortisBC has been supporting the community's vision of revitalizing the historic and renowned 11 km Wild Side trail. This short video celebrates the completion of the trail as community members and guests gather for the raising of a welcome figure to greet visitors.
