Election Code Input

We Need Your Comments

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.
