The FNNBOA Story
First Nations National Building Officers Association (FNNBOA) is a national nonprofit organization. It represents those individuals who provide residential, commercial and institutional construction and renovation technical services (i.e., plans review, inspections, recommending repairs, technical advocacy and advisory role) for buildings located in First Nation/Aboriginal communities. There are approximately 250 to 300 employed in this sector.

Sponsors & Partners
Partnership development is extremely important in today's complex world, regardless of whether your interests lie in finance, education, health or building homes. Partnerships are critical, particularly so to a new organization, with ambitions like the FNNBOA.
First Nations Remote Communities
For most of Canada, conducting Building inspections is not a challenge. However, conducting inspections for new homes in many First Nations is not always possible. When this happens, homes are not constructed to national building code requirements and will need major repairs in a few years. This is especially a problem in First Nations remote communities. FNNBOA have developed teleinspections that uses electronic information and telecommunication technologies to support building code compliance.
