Publishing First Nation Laws and Public Notices

Our mission

The First Nations Gazette publishes First Nation legislation

and provides public notification service for First Nations, other governments, corporations and other persons respecting Aboriginal matters. The First Nations Gazette is provided at no cost and serves as a legal research tool for those seeking First Nation laws enacted under the First Nations Fiscal Management Act, by-laws enacted under the Indian Act, or other First Nation enactments that a First Nation chooses to publish in the Gazette.
