The British Columbia Assembly of First Nations (BCAFN) is a Political Territorial Organization (PTO) representing the 203 First Nations in British Columbia. BCAFN representation is inclusive and extends to First Nations currently engaged in the treaty process, those who have signed modern treaties, and those who fall under historic treaty agreements, including the Douglas Treaties and Treaty 8.

The BCAFN is one of ten regional organizations affiliated with the national Assembly of First Nations whose members include 633 First Nations across Canada. The BCAFN Society is registered under the Societies Act of British Columbia as an incorporated society and operates with its own regionally specific mandates. The BCAFN strives to create new and better memories for First Nations that include meaningful participatory relationships with the provincial and federal governments, as well as industry that aims to close the socio-economic gap between First Nations and non-First Nations people.
