HOMALCO FIRST NATION

INVITATION TO THE MEMBERSHIP

 

 

Homalco First Nation entered into a Framework Agreement with the First Nation Land Management in 2014, and will be developing a Homalco Land Code for ratification by the membership. The Draft Homalco Land Code will be ready for distribution to members by August 2016, with a vote by the membership to be held in June 2017.

 

Homalco First Nation is establishing a Land Code Development Committee to learn about the Land Code and the First Nation Land Management process, assist with communication to members and family groups at community consultation meetings, door to door visits, prepare the initial list of eligible voters, locate eligible voters, and develop the community ratification process document. The Land Code Development Committee will begin orientation meetings in March, 2016 and complete the process of ratification of the land code in June, 2017

 

Homalco First Nation Council is requesting letters of interest from members who may be interested in a seat on the land code development committee, and who can commit the time each month until the Land Code ratification vote in June 2017.

 

It is anticipated that there will be a minimum of ­­­­2 meetings per month.  These meetings will be approximately 2-4 hours.  There will be a considerable amount of materials to review throughout the process.

 

Homalco Land Code Committee Members will be compensated with an honorarium of $75 per ½ day meeting and $150 for a full day meeting.

 

The selection process will be based on community representation and (1) person per family group.

 

Any member who may wish to tender their name for the Land Code Development Committee is requested to submit a letter of interest to the Chief and Council.

 

Important Note:

There is not a travel budget for participation in the Land Code Development Committee.  Participation by members living outside of the Campbell River area will be accommodated by tele-conference and email.
