About the Fraser Basin Council and Plug In BC
The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a non-profit society that advances sustainability in British Columbia, including the Fraser Basin. Established in 1997, the Council is a collaboration of four orders of government (Federal, Provincial, Local and First Nations) and those from the private sector and civil society. FBC helps bring people together to find solutions to sustainability issues, and works on such issues as flood management, climate change action and adaptation, air quality, green fleets, sustainable watersheds and fisheries, and sustainability reporting and education. We are grateful at the Fraser Basin Council to live and work on the unceded, ancestral territories of the Indigenous Nations of British Columbia.
