Members of the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan First Nation (AoPFN)
As you may or may not be aware, the First Nation does not have the means to properly enforce our Laws in Pikwakanagan. By developing our own Enforcement Law under the Framework Agreement which governs our Land Code, we have the authority to develop this Law. This law will only apply to lands within Pikwakanagan.
We are asking for any comments or concerns that you may have under the proposed Law. There is a full draft copy available on our web page for your review. If you want a hard copy or one by e-mail, please contact Kassandra at 613-625-2800 or and she will provide you with one.
