In Person

Five Ways To Stay Engaged In-Person

When it comes to the exchange of ideas or engaging, open discussion, nothing beats personal contact. There are many opportunities to engage face-to-face with Chiefs and Council, administration and other staff at the Líl̓wat Nation. From attending a community consultation on a specific issue to making a commitment to sit on a board or committee, there’s a place for everyone to get involved with the Líl̓wat Nation.

General Assemblies are held semi-annually to inform the community of current activities, report out on financial matters and address legislative needs such as referenda. The nation holds these community meetings in both Mount Currie and Vancouver to accommodate the greatest number of community members. General Assemblies create an opportunity for a complete review of the Líl̓wat Nation’s activities and are a great way to get a comprehensive overview of the “state of the nation.”
All of the Líl̓wat Nation’s major projects go through a rigorous process that includes community consultation. These events allow community members the opportunity to share their concerns about a project with Chiefs and Council, administration and staff. Community input is always carefully considered before a project moves forward.
Chiefs and Council meet bi-weekly on Tuesdays at 6 pm in Council Chambers at the Úll̓us Community Complex. Council meetings are open to all members of Líl̓wat Nation. The minutes from council meetings are available to Líl̓wat Nation members from the council’s executive secretary. To request a copy of the most recent minutes, please click here.

Have an issue you want to discuss? Contact a Líl̓wat Nation elected official or senior staff member directly either by phone or email. If you are unsure which elected official can best address your concerns, please check Chiefs and Council page under Governance for the description of the specific portfolio(s) each councillor holds.
