PUBLIC CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST FOR APPEAL TRIBUNAL MEMBERS
PublicCall.appointments.26Jan18 Appeals Committee

The Administrative Appeals Act establishes the Tribunal to hear appeals of certain administrative decisions made by the First Nation of Nacho Nyak Dun (the “NND”) with respect to specific programs and services. The Tribunal operates at arm’s-length from the Council.

The Act intends to bring accountability and transparency to administrative decisions made by the NND and ensure that such decisions are made fairly and in accordance with the NND’s laws and policies. The Act will be brought into legal effect when the members of the Tribunal are appointed and other steps are taken for the Tribunal to become operational.

The Council will appoint at least four persons as members of the Tribunal for terms of three years. For the initial appointments of the members, two members will be appointed for a term of three years, one for two years and one for one year.

The NND requests interested persons, particularly NND citizens, submit written expressions of interest to the Council at the address below. A person may be appointed as a member of the Tribunal if he or she:
(a) has not been convicted of an indictable offence or an offence of theft, fraud or false pretenses during the preceding seven years;
(b) has a familiarity with the NND’s traditions and values and its community;
(c) is not a member of the Council or a NND employee; and
(d) is at least 25 years of age.

The Council will strive to appoint NND citizens as members of the Tribunal and, in particular, give consideration to persons who are elders and youth and seek gender balance with respect to the appointment of members.

For further information, including a copy of the Act, contact Chrystal Lattie at chrystal.lattie@nndfn.com or 867-996-2265 ext. 213.

Please submit any expressions of interests until March 31, 2018, to: PO Box 220, Mayo, Yukon, Y0B 1M0 or chrystal.lattie@nndfn.com.
