The Qalipu First Nation and the Federation of Newfoundland Indians will be hosting nine community sessions during February and March 2017.  The community sessions are being arranged to provide members and applicants with an opportunity to receive information about the enrolment process and to raise questions and concerns. The agenda for the community sessions will be structured as follows:

  • Opening prayer and welcoming remarks
  • History of the enrolment file
  • Present status of the enrolment file
  • Appeals process overview
  • Questions and answers

Chief Mitchell, who will be accompanied by Elders and the Qalipu Ward Councillor, will lead the community sessions.  Information will also be shared with members and applicants regarding support services that are available to help them through this difficult time.

The next round of community sessions will take place from February 19 – March 7, 2017 as per the following schedule:
