Amendments on February 21 & 22, 2013

Dear Members, Elders, of Tsawout First Nation

Happy new year to you!  By now, you should have received a copy of the frequently asked questions about the Membership Law and a summary of the amendments to the Land Code and a notice of vote for February 21, 22, 2013 Vote.  The Tsawout Lands Management Committee and community have been working hard to finalize the Tsawout Membership Law, and the Land Code Amendments.  We have held several community meetings over the past two years in order to gather input on these important documents.

We are asking for your positive support (Yes Vote) on the Membership Law and the Land Code Amendments and the Frequently Asked Questions, which summarizes key points of our Membership Law.

The Membership Law will provide clear guidance to Tsawout when accepting new members, and transfers.  The amendments to the Land Code will support the important work that the Tsawout Lands Management Committee is carrying out.

If you have any questions at all about the two documents that you will be voting on or if you would like copies of the full documents, please contact our lands department at (250) 652-9101.
