Candidates must not be in arrears to the Band more than $500 and all candidates must pay a $100 deposit and swear they are eligible, by April 28 (10 days after the nomination).

After the nomination meeting, you will be sent a notice of the election and ballots so you can vote by mail if you like.

We try to send notices and ballots to everyone off-reserve, but we don’t have everyone’s address. If you know any Band Member who didn’t get a notice, tell them to call Trish Grant at the Administration Office (250-639-9361 ext.104 or 1-888-842-4752 ext.104) to make sure she has their right address.
