AKWESASNE FINANCIAL ADMINISTRATION LAW | INFORMATION MEETING
An information meeting regarding the draft Akwesasne Financial Administration Law will be held on Saturday, August 17 from 10 AM – 12 PM at the Kawehno:ke Recreation Center.
This session is being held to provide information on the draft law to the community prior to the enactment vote, scheduled to take place at a Special General Meeting on Saturday, August 24 at the Kanonhkwat’sheri:io Health Facility Atrium in Kana:takon.
The proposed Financial Administration Law supports sound financial administration practices by modernizing the rules dealing with financial management. Providing better rules for financial accountability will increase transparency and accountability to the Akwesasne community.
The proposed draft law completed Phase III of the Akwesasne Legislative Enactment Regulation – Community Consultation in April 2019.
Community comments received were compiled into a report for review and recommendation by the Akwesasne Legislative Commission, followed by a second legal review and input from the Working Task Group.
A full copy of the law, and a Community Notice was mailed to every household in the Districts in June 2019. If you did not receive a copy in your mailbox, or are interested in picking up the information package directly, you can request these documents at the Akwesasne Justice Department 613-575-2250 ext. 2400.
