How to Request Service from the OFNTSC

There are two ways to request service from the OFNTSC.

UNAFFILIATED/LARGE FIRST NATION METHOD – You can call the OFNTSC at any time to request service from either service center (Thunder Bay or Toronto).  This method is recommended for Unaffiliated and Large First Nations in Ontario.

TRIBAL COUNCIL METHOD – If a First Nation is associated with a Tribal Council, a First Nation can make a direct request for service to the Tribal Council’s technical services unit. The technical services unit will then request service from the OFNTSC.
