In November 2007, ONEXONE and AFN set a goal to increase the availability of healthful food for all First Nations school children. Following the completion of a national environmental assessment on nutrition programs and policies in First Nations schools, ONEXONE and AFN developed the National First Nations School Breakfast Program. The AFN continues to support and advise ONEXONE on matters relating to First Nations in Canada.
AFN is a national advocacy organization representing First Nation citizens in Canada, which includes more than 900,000 people living in 634 First Nation communities and in cities and towns across the country. The role of the National Chief and the AFN is to advocate on behalf of First Nations as directed by Chiefs-in-Assembly. This includes facilitation and coordination of national and regional discussions and dialogue, advocacy efforts and campaigns, legal and policy analysis, communicating with governments, including facilitating relationship building between First Nations and the Crown as well as public and private sectors and general public.
