Aboriginal Travel Services (ATS) is enthusiastic to have been selected as the Event Specialist and Travel Supplier for the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA). It is our intention to work collaboratively and in partnership with the FNHA and build upon the existing relations that our respective organizations have developed throughout the province of British Columbia.
ATS is currently working closely with many First Nations communities within BC to assist with individual and group travel requirements, in addition to the facilitation of regional meetings and events. Our focus is building capacity locally and provincially by employing First Nations individuals for a variety of roles within the tourism and hospitality industry. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Aboriginal Tourism BC (AtBC), ATS not only facilitates corporate travel for a variety of organizations, we are tasked with developing and marketing Aboriginal tourism experiences throughout culturally rich British Columbia.
Our goal is to form a true long-lasting partnership with First Nations Health Authority and maintain the entrepreneurial nimbleness that has been a contributor to our success. Located on Coast Salish Territories in downtown Vancouver, ATS is an Aboriginal-owned agency reinvesting profits into First Nations communities by creating training, education and development opportunities for Aboriginal youth throughout the province. Greater than ten percent of all travel facilitation fees flow directly towards these programs and we value the FNHA partnership in fulfilling our mutual social considerations.
