Message for members

Dear members,

I am reaching out to you today to tell you that Chief and Council will not be travelling to Edmonton this year for our annual per capita distributions. This will be the first year that we will not be hosting a Christmas Brunch. The 14-day quarantine is still active in the NWT. When it is safe to travel again we will host a meeting with members in Edmonton and Area. We will be mailing out all payments this year to members, please ensure all your contact and address information is up to date and please inform Juliette Hunter, the membership Clerk. 1-867-872-2986. Thank you again for your understanding and we look forward to a brighter and healthier future very soon.
