Welcome to the Curve Lake Governance Project Information Centre

This governance project is the first step to determine whether the community desires a custom election code or wishes to remain under the electoral process set out in the Indian Act.  The following resources are provided to help community members to understand what the differences are between electoral processes.  This area also provides the necessary links to provide your thoughts, desires and express your concerns to Shagi Consulting Services – the company hired to gather input so Chief and Council can make an informed decision.
