Following the passage of a financial-transparency law by the federal government in 2013, First Nations are required to publish audited financial statements of salaries and expenses online.

A document published by Metro Vancouver’s Kwikwetlem First Nation shows economic development officer and Chief Ron Giesbrecht was paid $914,219 in compensation and $16,574 in expenses for the financial year ending March 31, 2014.

Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada reports the Kwikwetlem band has a registered population of 37 and 33 people.


This example is probably the worse that could be found i believe,as i assume all Chief's are not paid this much to govern per person in a band.

Should this information be made public or should it be submitted to government to be audited?
I believe if government found some misspent money it could be investigated without being made public.

Of course this info should be made public. The salaries and expenses of the PM, Premiers, MPs, MLAs, Mayors, etc are all public, so why shouldn't first nations leaders be public also? It helps keep them accountable.

Imagine how much Harper and Ghiz would be soaking us for if they didn't have to be accountable to the public. :shock:

At least the PEI bands released their statements, which can't be said for a lot of other ones.

Within the timeline stated by the government?
