Notice of Community Meetings June 27, July 19

Sitansisk Chief and Council has scheduled two community meetings for June 27 and July 19, 2024. These meetings will have different formats and objectives.

The first meeting, held on June 27, 2024, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., will be conducted via ZOOM, and will focus on discussions related to the adoption of the First Nations Elections Act. During this session, a webform will be released for members to ask questions to Council and support staff regarding: Economic Development, Housing, Fisheries, and Community Safety. The meeting will take the format of an information session, focused on the First Nations Elections Act, as well as information on referendums Council has taken recommendations for, followed by a Q&A.

The second community meeting will be held on July 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Maqiyahtimok Centre, with a ZOOM livestream option for those who cannot attend in person. At this second meeting, Chief and Council, aided by administrative staff, will provide answers to as many questions asked by members at the first meeting and via the webform as possible. This will be structured to deliver answers to questions asked in advance, with any remaining time in the session used to provide a Q&A.

Additional information sessions will be organized as needed in the coming months, based on questions from members. Members are encouraged to start to prepare any questions they may have for Council for submission via the webform. Members are asked to use clear language and be mindful to pose only one question per submission to ensure nothing goes overlooked (members may submit multiple questions as separate items.)
