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 2021.

Community Meetings began in October 2019.
