The Metro Vancouver Aboriginal Executive Council (MVAEC) was formed in 2009 to serve as a collective for urban Aboriginal agencies. There are currently 25 members.
Our mandate is to strategically plan for programs and services for the urban Aboriginal population. We advocate and represent our member agencies to various levels of government and stakeholders. We do not represent provincial organizations, yet cooperate where possible. This applies also to our on-reserve relatives.
Application for membership in MVAEC is open to all off-reserve urban Aboriginal not-for-profit service-providing organizations that meet all membership criteria, and will affirm their commitment to upholding our constitution and bylaws.
The Urban Indigenous Opioid Task Force (UIOTF) is a coordinated response team of stakeholders who collaborate to share information and develop strategies for navigating the opioid crisis in Metro Vancouver.
