Attention all Band Members
The Chapleau Cree First Nation (CCFN) has been successful in securing funds to update our existing membership code (Click Here to View). The current code was created more than 20 years ago and does not meet the modern needs of the CCFN. Changes in legislation over the past years have left a void in our code and these new situations need to be addressed.This is your opportunity to provide input in the ammending and/or creation of Membership Code that will meet not only our current needs but our future needs as well.
Please take the time to consider this opportunity and provide your voice to the furture direction the Chapleau Cree First Nation will take with respect to additional members and citizens of our First Nation. It is the intent of this project to have a new code ratified by a majority vote of the membership in the near future.
Provided is a copy of the existing code that is used to determine the eligibility and expectations of members to the CCFN. Any input regarding any topics i.e.: eligibility to membership, rules for membership, oversight of the code and any other opinion or information you as a member feel needs to be a part of the Membership Code.
We would ask that membership provide us with their input by January 4th, 2013.
To this Cree salutation that we make upon meeting and parting I add a special welcome to you, Chapleau Cree member and visitor alike, to our community website. It is our e-moccasin site, reminiscent of the moccasin telegraph that carried our community information from household to household so well in days gone by. Make it your home page, so that with well worn use, it can be your daily link to us. May our weakest link ever grow stronger.
