Attention Band Members,

It is unfortunate that we are now facing a global health crisis that seems all to real. We had scheduled a budget meeting for tonight at the band office. We have come to the decision to POSTPONE the meeting until we see a stabilization in these new cases in Canada. The elders have collectively made the recommendation, that our members and our general public's safety should be a priority. Salt River First Nation will adhere to health professional’s advice even in the far reaches of the North. We will update members with a mail-out and website posts of the new future date and time in the coming weeks. Thank you all for your understanding in the matter.

Chief David Poitras
