What is a Constitution?

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.

How will our constitution be developed?

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.

Why do we need a Constitution

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.
