C/TFN’s constitution was updated in May of 2012 under a tight timeline with an election pending. At that time, it was decided that a more detailed review would be required to deal with significant issues. The current constitution was developed by citizens in 1997 when C/TFN was an Indian Act band. Ten years later, now in self-government, the First Nation operates much differently than what was proposed at that time. Clans have appointed individuals to work as part of a Constitution Committee in identifying the most serious issues and how they can be addressed. The Committee has identified issues to be updated and is seeking input of citizens, including through community meetings and this website. To learn more about the issues identified and provide your feedback please click on the link below.
