First Nations Gazette
Published semi-annually, the First Nations Gazette provides widespread notice of Aboriginal law. While the main focus has been the property taxation by-laws, pursuant to section 83 of the Indian Act and the property taxation laws pursuant to the First Nations Fiscal and Statistical Management Act, other laws will ultimately be published.
A Record of First Nation Legislation
The Gazette is an indispensable tool for Aboriginal peoples, First Nation governments, taxpayers, federal, provincial, territorial, municipal governments, lawyers, assessors, businesses, or anyone involved with or affected by First Nation taxation initiatives.
Publishing these by-laws and laws is an important step toward Aboriginal self-government. The Gazette furthers both public and First Nation acceptance of on-reserve taxation initiatives, and assists First Nations with enforcement of property taxation by-laws and laws by ensuring regular notice is provided and that a register of all current by-laws and laws is widely available.
Making First Nation Legislation Accessible
The Gazette also meets the significant growth in demand for notice of and access to First Nation by-laws and laws. This information is important to First Nation citizens, leasehold and other residents living on reserve lands, electors, legal practitioners, and those with commercial and other interests in reserve land.
The First Nations Gazette is published under the authority of the First Nations Fiscal and Statistical Management Act as a joint partnership between the First Nations Tax Commission and the Native Law Centre at the University of Saskatchewan.
