“The land belongs to the Creator,
and the people belong to the land”
-EFN Elders statement
RSD Department Priorities:
- 1. Educating and informing our membership about projects and proposals
- 2. Providing opportunities to exercise our Aboriginal and Treaty rights through community based decision making, and engaging with regulatory systems
Message from Chief and Council on investment in RSD:
This department is something that our leaders envisioned back in 2010, and we have been working towards establishing a dedicated office for information sharing and meetings for some time. Officially opened in 2015, our current office includes a meeting space for approx. 50 people and our staff focused on internal consultation, communications, and various research activities. This team exists to serve all EFN members, and relay information back and forth to leadership as well as potential partners. Please make use of our dedicated staff, come by for a coffee, and share your interests and concerns about what is happening within our beautiful homeland!
EFN Council and RSD Staff working together on Resource Stewardship strategy and planning discussions to be held in EFN and off-reserve in the coming year.
