Special Council meetings may be called on an as needed basis. These meetings are usually called on short notice and the agenda may not be available prior to the start of the meeting. These meetings are normally open to the public unless noted otherwise.
Anyone who would like Council to consider an issue must submit a written request providing all relevant details. Requests are to be addressed to Chief and Council. It is important that the applicant attend the Council meeting prepared to discuss the topic with Council. Contact the Executive Manager for more details on submitting a request.
Youth Council meetings are held at least four times per year. Because KFN youth live in many different communities, Youth Council meetings may take place in different communities. Please contact the Youth Councillor for information on Youth Council meetings.
Elders Council meetings are held monthly and serves as an advisory forum for the Council. Council may seek advice from the Elder’s Council on any issue that arises during regular Council meetings. For more information on Elders Council meetings contact the Executive Manager.
