Published by the Aboriginal Financial Officers Association of British Columbia (AFOABC), this handbook offers information, tools, and resources to help people make informed decisions about money. The handbook includes material that reflects the realities of First Nations communities in British Columbia, including information about filing income tax returns on reserve; financial tips for elders; and the link between financial literacy today and Aboriginal traditions like the potlatch, which was rooted in the sharing of wealth.
