The Mississaugas of the Credit Council is considering whether to opt into the First Nations Elections Act. Currently Band Council Elections are held pursuant to the Indian Act Elections & Voting Regulations.
For several years past Council’s have been reviewing the Indian Act Election & Voting Regulations with the purpose of developing a MNCFN Election & Voting Regulation. However, Indian and Indigenous Affairs Canada and several First Nations from across the country have developed a new First Nations Elections Act (FNEA), which appears to address many of the outstanding issues First Nations face under the Indian Act Election & Voting Regulations.
The Mississaugas of the Credit Council now wish to hear from you. Please take the time to review the comparison chart and contact the Lands, Research & Membership Office to voice your comments/concerns, likes/dislikes.
A final report outlining your comments, will be presented to Council in late May 2017. It is expected Council will make a decision on the matter sometime in June 2017.
