There are not many groups in Canada that have the unique government-to-government relationship that First Nations share with Canada. This meant there were very few products available to help First Nations deal with financial issues. That is, until now. This fiscal planning aid has been developed specifically for First Nations governments and organizations like yours. The goal of the Fiscal Planning Calendar and its components is to help you to balance fiscal pressures from your communities and funding agencies by following a simple process.
