On September 13, 2022, Piikani Nation Chief and Council enacted revisions to the Piikani Nation Election Bylaw, 2002, and on October 4, 2022, Council enacted revisions to the Piikani Nation Election Regulations, 2002.  Band council resolutions approving those revisions were posted to the Piikani Nation website shortly after they were enacted.

Summary

The revisions made to the Election Bylaw and Regulations were made to ensure that our elections legislation is clear, transparent and up-to-date.  These changes will, among other things:

  • Ensure there is no campaigning at polling stations or using recording devices at polling stations
  • Ensure that candidates do not have a criminal conviction in the last five years
  • Ensure that candidates have not been recently bankrupt, do not owe money to Piikani Nation and are not suing Piikani Nation
  • Protect member privacy by making the electoral list available only for viewing, and not posting

There are a number of other changes as well.  We encourage members to read the memorandum attached that sets out a more complete summary. PDF Download

The Consolidated Piikani Nation Election Bylaw, 2002 and Consolidated Piikani Nation Election Regulations, 2002 is available on the Piikani Nation website at https://piikanination.com/piikani-nation-legal/.

Questions about this matter may be directed to Corbin Provost, Chief Operating Officer, at corbin.provost@piikanination.com or (403) 965-3940.
