The Communications Unit distributes information in a wide variety of formats and delivery services including print, broadcast fax, video and video messages, e-mail blasts, the internet, the AFN website, Indigenous and non-Indigenous media and social media.

AFN currently uses Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to engage in and encourage social networking. The AFN website is updated on a daily basis and maintains a media distribution and subscription service which allows users to sign up for regular AFN updates and news delivered to their personal e-mail and mobile device.

A broadcast fax distribution service is also used to ensure information on key issues reaches all First Nations, in particular in areas with low or no connectivity. The AFN uses all these channels and communications vehicles to ensure the widest reach possible to all First Nations regardless of location.

I am honoured to take part in the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the signing of #Treaty1. As the 1st numbered Treaty in the country, it set the precedent for all numbered Treaties that followed. #WeAreAllTreatyPeople #Treaty150 @treatyonenation #ChiefDennisMeeches
