Tribal Council

A Tribal Council is defined as "a grouping of bands with common interests who voluntarily join together to provide advisory and/or program services to member bands." These groupings are required to incorporate under provincial or federal legislation.

Once recognized as a Tribal Council, the incorporated body must provide five core advisory services to their member First Nations. The services include: economic development, financial management, community planning, technical services, and band governance.
