You are invited June 23 and 24, 2021 for the second of a series of virtual sessions for the 9th annual Our Gathering kexwkexwntsút chet, tə sq̓əq̓ip ct co-hosted by the First Nations Leadership Council, Indigenous Services Canada, and Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada.

In accordance with the current province-wide COVID-19 public health order, the hosts are organizing virtual sessions instead of gathering in-person as in previous years. In March, the first virtual Our Gathering, 2021 kexwkexwntsút chet, tə sq̓əq̓ip ct session provided over 630 First Nations leaders, community members, and Government of Canada representatives with a space for meaningful discussion on a variety of topics, including responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, Specific Claims, and Bill C-15 - Canada's proposed legislation to implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. We would like to thank all of the attendees and participants of March's event. If you would like more information and resources from the March sessions, click here to access the Our Gathering kexwkexwntsút chet, tə sq̓əq̓ip ct website.

The June 23 and 24 half-day sessions are tailored specifically for those in First Nations Administration. Administration is an integral part of how Nations run day-to-day operations, and the work has only gotten more complicated during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, these sessions will provide an opportunity for those who work in First Nations administration to connect directly with others from across the province with similar titles and to hold discussions with representatives from Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) on a variety of topics relevant to Band Administration and the future of each of their Nations. This session is intended for Chiefs and Councillors, and senior Band administration and governance staff. All First Nations leadership are welcome to attend.
