At Jean Marie River, our goal is to establish an effective self-governance system. Our main objectives include:
- Strengthening the relationship between Jean Marie River council and membership
- Strengthening the operation of the Jean Marie River First Nation
- Providing leadership training to youth
We encourage traditional values of respect, honesty and open-mindedness in all our dealings with members. Clear communication between chief and council and membership is integral to our governance model.
As we transition to a Dehcho government, we plan to carry out effective, ongoing community planning and will ensure staff members have the latest training in order to maximize the efficiency of our day-to-day operations. We look forward to involving members and youth in council meetings and community planning as we move ahead.
