Governance Policy Engagement Session

You are invited!

The Squamish Nation Council received legal advice recommending that its Governance Manual be revised to ensure legality, consistency, conciseness and readability. Council is proud to announce we intend to proceed with a Squamish Nation membership consultation process regarding the Governance Manual now that this legal review is complete. Following a Council Motion dated January 25, 2018, Clark Wilson LLP was instructed to proceed with its recommended
revisions to the Governance Manual. The initial review looked at broad, high-level issues with the Governance Manual. Clark Wilson LLP has completed a comprehensive analysis as requested. What was previously called the Governance Manual is now called the Council Governance Policy. The comprehensive review included recommended amendments that provided: cosmetic edits; revisions to ensure it meets standard legislative drafting practices and conforms to principles of statutory interpretation; and alteration of the title to Council Governance Policy.

Council would like to invite members to begin a discussion on how the community would like to amend the Governance Policy.
