An Open House is an informal event arranged by Nation administration to share information about programs, services, and strategic initiatives. Members have an opportunity to interact with and ask questions of department Directors and employees. 

How is an Open House different from the People's Assembly or a Town Hall?

The People's Assembly is a formal meeting of Membership held according to Chapter 6 of the Squamish Nation Election & Referendum Law. It is held three times a year, presents pre-determined topics (eg. the annual budget), and a certain number of Members must attend to meet quorum. Members wishing to present at a People's Assembly must submit a Member Resolution. For more information about the People's Assembly, please visit www.squamish.net/peoples-assembly

A Town Hall is a meeting organized by Nexwsxwníw̓ntm ta Úxwumixw (Council) around a specific topic with the opportunity for Q&A. It is less formal than the People's Assembly as the schedule and structure is not set by the Squamish Nation Election & Referendum Law. For more information about Town Halls, please visit www.squamish.net/town-hall.
