A constitution is the highest law of a nation by which the people agree to be governed.
A Kitsumkalum Constitution will outline the political rights of the Kitsumkalum people along with the roles and responsibilities of government.
The development of the Kitsumkalum Constitution will be a community-driven process.
Community representatives will be engaging members through community meetings, open houses and individual visits.
A constitution is essential in achieving self-government and an important step towards good government.
Post-treaty, the Indian Act will no longer apply and a Kitsumkalum Constitution will set out the structure for a new government.
A constitution will balance an individual’s rights and responsibilities in a fair way.
A Kitsumkalum Constitution will include provisions to ensure the Kitsumkalum government has financial transparency and accountability.
Along with the constitution, a financial administration law could help establish specific policy and procedures to make sure those goals of accountability are met.
