They provide confidence to members that everyone is treated fairly and equally and may protect a Nation against possible legal action and loss of money and property.

The FMB has developed 4 sample policies to assist First Nations with bringing their FAL to life and becoming FMS certified.

While these sample policies and procedures meet the FMB's Standards, they should be adapted to fit the specific needs of your First Nation as well as your FAL.
