Land Code Amendments Vote

Nipissing First Nation ratified our existing Land Code on May 9, 2003. A lot has changed in the past 19 years, and it is time we update our Land Code. NFN Land Code has been reviewed by our Lands Committee and legal counsel. These and any other amendments to the Land Code will require a vote which is proposed to take place on February 25, 2023.

Proposed Land Code Amendments, and complete information packages, along with details of the vote, will be sent out in January 2023.

To make it easier for members to vote, we are offering three methods of voting:

  • Online with One Feather
  • By mail in ballot
  • In person at one of the polls on the proposed date of February 25, 2023
