The Mississaugas of the Credit Council is considering whether to opt into the First Nations Elections Act. Currently, Council Elections are held pursuant to the Indian Act Elections and Voting Regulations.
For several years, past Councils have been reviewing the Indian Act Election and Voting Regulations with the purpose of developing an MCFN Election and Voting Regulation. However, Indigenous Services 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 and 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 and Membership Office to voice your comments/concerns, likes/dislikes.
