Statement on the passing of  OFNTSC Engineer Rob Oliver:

UPDATE – March 6, 2019: The OFNTSC is providing an update on the passing of Rob Olivier. It was Rob’s wish to have a small, private funeral service for his immediate family only. In lieu of a public service and flowers, it was Rob’s final wish to have money sent to the OFNTSC to support First Nation educational attainment.  In that regard, the OFNTSC will be creating a Rob Olivier Memorial Scholarship Fund which will be used to support Ontario First Nation students. All wishing to make a donation to this worthwhile cause can e-transfer money to: finance@ofntsc.org or by mail (via cheque) to OFNTSC, 111 Peter St., Suite 606, Toronto, ON M5V 2H1. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact Colin French, Communications Officer, 416 651 1443 ext. 245.


Supporting Ontario First Nations with technical services since 1995.

Technical Services


Strategic Plan Priorities

Along with twelve core services, the OFNTSC will continue to support First Nations in Capital Project Planning, quality assurance, training, architectural support and services. The OFNTSC engineers and technicians often work with Chiefs & Councils, Directors of Technical Services/Public Works, Band Administrators, Water Plant Operators, Emergency and Response personnel, provincial and federal ministries.

reconThe OFNTSC is responsible to report to Chiefs-in-Assembly (Annual Report) once a year, and report’s to tribal council technical service units (Board Members), Large First Nations (Board Members), and Unaffiliated First Nations (Board Members) three times a year. In addition, the OFNTSC’s strategic plan identified a number of stakeholders that have a profound impact on the direction of the OFNTSC.

  • Organizational Stability: organizational review and restructuring to ensure long-term sustainability
  • Mandated Core Services: supporting First Nations and tribal councils with community development by becoming a total solution provider
  • Community Development: ensure consistent delivery of mandated core services to improve standard of living for First Nations
  • Client Focus: improve client focus and satisfaction
