Holding Band Council Elections

First Nations select their Chief and Council through elections. The Chief and Council form the government for their First Nation and are responsible for making decisions on behalf of the First Nation.

An election can be held in one of two ways: by following steps outlined in the Indian Act, or by following the First Nation's own community election system (Custom Code).
