The Carrier Sekani Tribal Council (CSTC) has developed a First Nations Referrals Officer Training Program (ROTP) that is focused on assisting First Nations with building capacity to manage referrals and consultation requests regarding natural resource management projects. This ROTP project was based on work that the BC Aboriginal Mentoring and Training Association (BC AMTA) had started, which is now managed by CSTC. Funding for delivery of the ROTP have come from: Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) and the Strategic Partnership Initiative (SPI), TransCanada Pipelines, and BC AMTA.
