Policy Manual

The attached document is the Policy Manual for the Łutsel K’e Dene First Nation. A separate document, found here, titled “Constitution & Bylaws” provides further information regarding the roles and relationships between Members, Council and Administrative Staff. 

The information in the Policy Manual, is based on the beliefs, principles, traditions and practices of the Łutsel K’e Dene First Nation (LKDFN). The information presented are the results of work  done over time by the Łutsel K’e Dene First Nation membership at its Special Assemblies and the efforts of the Łutsel K’e Dene First Nation Council and staff to develop appropriate policies and practices to manage the business and day-to-day operations of the LKDFN. 

These administrative policies have been put in place by the Łutsel K’e Dene First Nation Council.  By using these policies, the Council wants to make sure that all LKDFN decisions and practices are clear, fair and consistent. Also, the Council wants to make sure that members are getting the best level of service and benefits possible from employees and from the money the Łutsel K’e Dene First Nation receives and spends on behalf of its members. 

These policies apply to all personnel within the Łutsel K’e Dene First Nation and may only be changed by a formal Band Council Resolution.
