The next Six Nations Council Election will be held in the Fall 2019.

 

A Six Nations Election Code Committee was appointed in the late Fall of 2017 whose assignment is to engage with Six Nations community people regarding their opinions on possible changes to the 1995 Election Code. Taking these thoughts into consideration, the Election Code Committee will revise the code, share it with the Six Nations band members and will have a vote on a New 2019 Election Code at Bread & Cheese Day 2019.

This page contains information about the Election Code Committee, important documents regarding the Election Code, dates for future meetings and a survey that asks the opinion of Six Nations Band Members.

Welcome! Please look around this site and complete the survey.

Thanks/Niaweh

The following short survey will give the Election Code Committee a better idea of the views of Six Nations Band Members. While the questions deal with the issues that have been identified several times in previous meetings, there is an opportunity for each person completing the survey to raise other issues. This is not a vote but an opportunity for the Election Code Committee to understand what Six Nations Band Members are thinking about a new Election Code. The results of this survey will be communicated to the Six Nations people at the Final Community Meeting November 23 at the Community Hall.

This survey is anonymous. To open the survey, please enter your band number. Your band number will act like a key to open the survey but will not be kept on any record. Your band number will 1. Open the survey. 2. Prevent non-band members from taking part in the survey and 3. Prevent a person from completing the survey more than once. Only Six Nations members will be able to open the survey.
