Membership & Status Cards

Membership Law

The Kootenay Nations St. Mary’s Indian Band Membership Laws, developed in 1987, has been identified as requiring revisions/updates based on community survey data.  Community began revisions to the Law in 2016 and we are seeking further input with the intent of hosting a ratification vote on a new Membership Law in 2020.

Community Meetings began in October 2019. If you have missed any of the previous Engagement Sessions and would like Meeting Minutes or handouts, please contact Julie Couse at .
