Capital Facilities and Maintenance (CFM) Program

We provide funding and advice to help Yukon and Northern B.C. Indian Act First Nations deliver and maintain community infrastructure. Through the Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program, we support the construction, renovation and planning of new infrastructure. Funds are also available to operate and maintain existing infrastructure.

We invest in three main areas:

  • Housing
  • Water and wastewater systems
  • Other infrastructure (roads and bridges, fire protection, electrification, community facilities etc).

We provide two kinds of funding in the Yukon region:

  • Operations and maintenance,
  • Minor capital (for projects under $1.5 million)

Some funding is annual and based on population, while other funding is project-specific. First Nations develop a 5-year capital plan for their community. They set their own priorities and request funding based on this plan.
