The National Coalition of Chiefs (‘NCC”) is committed to defeating on-reserve poverty by working with the natural resource industry, speaking out in support of responsible development and by creating a forum for discussion between First Nation Chiefs, and leaders from the Natural Resource Industry of Canada.

The Story of NCC

The NCC was formed by First Nation Chiefs in response to the poverty crisis and social despair that currently exists in our communities throughout Canada. The NCC’s mandate and purpose was developed through comprehensive dialogue, meetings and consideration of best practices with the intent of creating a national organization focused on creating mutually-beneficial relationships among First Nations, and industry leadership.

The Story of NCC


Chief Roy S Jones Jr

we need to be involved at every level of shipping and cargo, as a researcher Chief Jones understands the environmental challenges we all face in our global community and the role hydrocarbons play in our daily lives.

He’s the father of three daughters and six grandchildren and strongly feels that we all have to be involved in industry to ensure the transportation of Hydrocarbons and other cargos are done safely as well as develop safe guards while seeking out opportunities for the economic benefit of our coastal peoples, he says “I’m involved because we have to ensure safety comes first, we represent the future of our grandchildren and their children who are not born yet, the use of Hydrocarbons are not going to go away tomorrow we have to live with that in our time, only time will change that”
