Notice of Draft Land Law Tabled For Enactment by Council
Re: Henvey Inlet First Nation Windfarm Legacy Trust

Band Council has tabled a draft land law which will authorize the establishment of the Henvey Inlet First Nation Windfarm Legacy Trust to manage income from Nigig Power Corporation and unexpended rent from the windfarm project for the benefit of our First Nation.

The land law will give effect to a proposed Trust model which has been developed through community consultation, and which is subject to a Community Approval Vote to be held on Sunday, 13 December 2020. If the proposed Trust model is approved by the members, Council and will enact the enclosed draft land law in an open Council meeting on Tuesday, 15 December 2020.

Attached to this Notice you will find:

  • Draft Henvey Inlet First Nation Windfarm Legacy Trust land law with side-by-side plain
    language guide
  • Draft Henvey Inlet First Nation Windfarm Legacy Trust Settlement Deed
  • Feedback Form which you can send to the Lands Advisory Committee or Council.

Please note that the community approval vote relates only to the Trust proposal. Under Henvey Inlet First Nation’s Land Code, the draft land law does not require a community approval vote. Council not proceed with the land law unless the Trust proposal is not approved by the membership.

I look forward to discussing the Henvey Inlet First Nation Windfarm Legacy Trust model, the draft land law and the draft trust settlement deed with you at the Community Meeting on Monday, 02 November 2020. If you are unable to attend, please review the documentation and use the enclosed Feedback Form to let Council and the Lands Advisory Committee know your views. You can also contact me, Councillor Pat Brennan who is chair of the Lands Advisory Committee, or any other member of Council or the Lands Advisory Committee for further information or to discuss any aspect of the land law.
