Message from the Beausoleil First Nation Chief

In this update I want to address the lead administrative position that has been vacant within our First Nation for almost 18 months. It began in May of 2007 when our Director of Finance and Administration left due to illness. Believing it to be a short term illness, the existing staff were assigned the additional duties of the absent Director. Within months and afer realizing the absence of the Director was going to be long term we requested the assistance of the Ogemawahj Tribal Council to act in a co-management role specifically for financial management and control. During that 18 month period of time some fundamental changes were implemented to try to cut the workload of the remaining staff and improve our procedures.
