Christmas Distribution

Each year, Nipissing First Nation distributes Christmas shares to registered members from the Band Revenue account.

Shares do not accumulate and must be picked up or requested separately each year*. Members who donate their share to a community cause will be provided with a Charitable Tax Receipt upon request.
With the exception of shares for children in care: these funds will be held “in trust” until the child is 16 years old. (Note: a child in care is any child who is currently not being raised by their birth parents.)

In 2022, Christmas shares were $250 for all members up to age 64, and $320 for members aged 65 years and older.
