Association of Canada
The Aboriginal Firefighters Association of Canada (AFAC) was founded on September 19, 1991 in Portage La Prairie, MB when a group of First Nations firefighters committed to forming a national Aboriginal firefighters association. The AFAC is a united body of regional First Nations emergency and fire service organizations from across Canada that was established to:
- Represent the interests of these associations nationally.
- Assist in the exchange of information.
- Support the implementation of services.
- Promote national standards in fire prevention, education, and suppression within First Nations in Canada.
