What is a Band Council Resolution? (BCR)


Although BCR’s are not defined anywhere in the Indian Act, they are referred or required to initiate, authorize or approve numerous transactions under the Act; they are a First Nation’s means of providing instructions, approvals, etc., to Indian & Northern Affairs Canada (INAC). They may, for reference purposes, be defined as a record of Acho Dene Koe First Nation’s council decision made by a majority of the councilors of ADKFN at a meeting of the council duly convened.

BCRs Passed by Council in 2018


As BCRs are passed, the website will be updated within 30 days of the meeting.

Record of BCRs prior to 2018 will be available for viewing in the office at the request and approval of Chief and Council.
