Champagne and Aishihik First Nations enact law governing membership


Yukon's Champagne and Aishihik First Nations government is aiming to clarify its process and criteria for band membership with its new Enrolment Act.

"Over the last 20 years we've adopted numerous acts regarding fish and wildlife, traditional activities protections... but we've never really looked at what it means to be a Champagne Aishihik First Nation person and citizen," said Steve Smith, Chief of the First Nations.

"The Enrolment Act overall is, I think, one of the first real pieces of legislation that starts to really entrench self-government, for Champagne Aishihik people in particular."
