Community engagement sessionThis is your opportunity to become better informed about Restoration of Jurisdiction. This year the Community Engagement Strategy (CES) sessions will take place in urban centres across Anishinabek territory.

Community Engagement Strategy sessions serve to support Anishinabek Grand Council mandates on:

•  Anishinabek path to self-government

•  Anishinaabe Dodemaag System of governance

•  Anishinaabe Chi-Naaknigewin and First Nation constitutions

•  Fiscal Arrangements for the Anishinabek Education System

• Proposed education and governance self-government agreements for the recognition by Canada of existing inherent rights

The Community Engagement Strategy also directly supports the advancement of the Governance Final Agreement towards a ratification process, and prepares Anishinabek citizens for a ratification vote on the Education Final Agreement in 2014.

We encourage you to come out to an urban session to learn and share. For information about the CES sessions please contact Tammy Desmoulin at .
