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
How to Register
The current land code sets the threshold of 33% of the eligible voters must be registered to vote.
Register to vote by February 25, 2023, and be entered in a draw for a first prize of $1,000 prepaid credit card, second prize of $500 prepaid credit card, and 2 draws for a $250 prepaid credit card. If you win, your name does not go back in for the draw for other prizes.
Information sessions were held on December 20, 2022 in Duchesnay and on December 22, 2022 in Garden Village. The Garden Village session was also available for community members to join online.
