LAND CODE DEVELOPMENT
The Missanabie Cree First Nation Governance Committee drafted a Land Code through meetings, consultation with Members during the 2023 Annual Gathering, and through Online Presentations.
The Land Code will replace sections of the Indian Act as they pertain to lands management. This process was made possible through the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management, which was ratified by Canada by the passage of the First Nations Land Management Act.
Prior to implementation, Members will have to accept the Land Code through a ratification vote held on a later date. There will be a Voting Notice posted.
Once accepted, the Land Code will enable Missanabie Cree First Nation to manage lands and resources at the community level. It will give us the freedom to develop our community without the strongholds and restrictions imposed under the Indian Act.

Chief and Council mandated the Governance Committee with the task to complete the Land Code for Missanabie Cree First Nation. The Governance Committee completed their goal of drafting a land code unique to our First Nation community by communicating the Land Code to the members and holding consultation/information sharing meetings online, on-reserve, and off the First Nation reserve.
We thank all who have contributed their valuable input and time into the development of the Land Code.
