Map of First Nations in the Northern Health Region of BC

First Nations and Aboriginal Communities in Northern B.C.

Northern Health stretches over two-thirds of the land base in the province of British Columbia! It is divided into three regions: Northwest, Northern Interior, and Northeast. Approximately 17% of the population residing in the Northern Health area is First Nations and Aboriginal. 

Aboriginal peoples include three distinct populations: First Nations, Inuit and Métis. There are 54 First Nations in the Northern Health region with a great diversity of traditions, cultures and languages. There are six Métis Associations across the north and a small Inuit population. 

Below the map are listings of the communities, towns and Friendship Centres in each region, including contact information.
