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.
For more information, please refer to the Christmas Distribution Policy.
