Chief & Council

We have an elected Chief and Council with eight councillors. We use our own Custom Election Regulations (we are in the process of revising our policy, but you can see two versions of the regulations here and here). Our Chief and councilors are appointed for a two-year term, but elections are staggered so that there are only 4-5 new councillors after an election, instead of a whole new Council.

Council meetings occur every Thursday at 6:00 p.m. Please contact Dylan Thomas, Band Manager, at manager@gwanak.info or (250) 949-8343 to inquire about getting on the agenda.
