In recent years, several First Nations and Indians Bands have chosen to reflect on how they conduct business in their communities. This has led to a review of the accountability of Council and staff in delivering good governance in their communities. Each client wanted a “living document” to act as a learning tool for new Councillors, to enable members of the community to better understand administration, and to assist new staff in understanding their roles and responsibilities in relation to those of the Councillors and Council as a whole.
Although there are common subject areas in the manuals, there are also very specific bylaws, policies, codes and plans for each individual community. Each community has taken the end product to a different level of development, requiring the development of short, medium and long term plans.
