Policies & Bylaws to Ensure a Safe and Secure Community

Gitga'at Bylaws

Gitga'at First Nation can create bylaws for good governance and to establish community standards on our reserve lands.


A "bylaw" is a regulation made by a local authority; or an ordinance. These standards are necessary for the promotion of the health, safety, and quality of life of Gitga'at members who live in the community, for the protection of property on reserve lands, and for the environmental protection of our reserve lands.

Gitga'at Policies

A policy can be defined as a documented set of broad guidelines and principles that guide decisions of government and which are implemented to achieve certain outcomes.


Policies are developed based on an analysis of various internal and external factors, including existing legislation, policies of other governments, accepted best practices, and Gitga'at leadership's vision and mandate.


Policies can direct and restrict the plans, decisions, and actions of Gitga'at leadership; policies can also dictate Gitga'at leadership's response to various situations and circumstances that may arise.
