    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY PURPOSE OF STUDY

    The purpose of this study is to develop comprehensive 2013 Salary Survey Report that identifies salary ranges for First Nation Chief and

    Councils, and 65 common positions employed by First Nation, Tribal Council and Aboriginal Health Family Service Organizations located

    in British Columbia. This study contains four (4) phases, unlike previous salary studies that involved three (3) phases. The first phase entails

    the design/development of a survey instruments to best capture information required for study. The second phase requires the administration

    of the survey instrument to over 200 First Nation, Tribal Council, and Aboriginal Health/Family Service organizations located within the

    boundaries of the Province of British Columbia. The third phase necessitates the research of collective bargaining agreements between the

    Federal/Provincial employers and their respective unions, and research of other reliable salary sources to determine current labour market

    rates for these employment positions. The fourth phase involves the sorting/cross sorting and analysis of collected survey data for

    presentation in a manner most useful to the readers of this Report.

    METHOD OF STUDY

    A. Phase One: Design and Develop the Salary Survey Instrument

    To undertake phase one of the assignment, namely the design and development of survey instruments to best capture information required

    for the study, a review was conducted on all major department and program areas common to First Nation, Tribal Council and Aboriginal

    Health/Family Service Organizations. This review and analysis goes beyond core Indian and Northern Affairs Canada funded programs and

    includes ten (10) major areas of operation.

    1. Governance and Leadership

    2. Organization Support Management & Administration

    3. Social Development Programs

    4. Health Programs

    5. Education Programs

    6. Housing & Infrastructure Programs

    7. Natural Resource Management Programs

    8. Economic Development Programs

    9. Treaty/Land Claims

    10. Human Resource Development Programs

    2013 BC First Nations Salary Report

    This year, sixty five (65) standard employment positions within ten major areas of operation were researched and reviewed, with many

    employment positions unique to First Nations, Tribal Councils, and Aboriginal Health/Family Service Organizations operations being

    included in the salary survey study. This year also had two separate surveys developed; one targeting First Nations and Tribal Councils,

    and one targeting Aboriginal Health/Family Service Organizations. Each salary survey instrument was constructed to gather information

    on:

    AFOA BC membership status of the respondent organizations

    Interest in AFOA BC membership by the respondent organization

    Organization name, address, telephone number, and contact person(s)

    Total on and off reserve membership of respondent organization *Adjusted for Tribal Councils and Aboriginal Health & Family Service Orgs.

    Total number of full-time employees on respondent organization payroll

    Length of AANDC funding agreement (1 or 5 years) with the organization *Adjusted for Aboriginal Health & Family Service Orgs.

    Total annual operating budget of the respondent organization

    Determination on whether the organization has established salary ranges

    Salary range information on sixty five (65) specific employment positions *Adjusted for Tribal Councils & Aboriginal Health/Family Orgs.

    B. Phase Two: Administering the Salary Survey Instrument

    To undertake this phase of the study, a contact lists of First Nations, Tribal Councils, and Aboriginal Health & Family Service organizations

    located in British Columbia was developed. This listing of target organizations contains the names, mailing addresses, phone numbers, fax

    numbers, and e-mail addresses for 200 First Nations, 27 Tribal Councils, and 32 Aboriginal Health/Family Service Organizations located

    within the geographic boundaries of British Columbia.

    Salary survey packages (which included an AFOA of BC introductory letter) were delivered via e-mail to all 200 First Nations, 27 Tribal

    Councils, and 32 Aboriginal Health & Family Service organizations. The e-mail method used for survey administration allowed all

    respondents time to complete the survey and e-mail or fax it to the contractor. The salary survey instruments were also made available on

    the AFOA of BC website at www.afoabc.org for
