What is TFN’s Judicial Council?
The Judicial Council is one of the branches of the Tsawwassen Government under the Tsawwassen Constitution. The Judicial Council is responsible for resolving disputes that arise on Tsawwassen Lands, resolving disputes between Tsawwassen Members and elected officials, hearing appeals from administrative decisions, and determining the validity of Tsawwassen laws. Anyone who makes a claim to the Judicial Council or who answers such a claim is called a “litigant”. Depending on the nature of the dispute and which Tsawwassen Law applies, litigants may be Tsawwassen Members or could be non-Members.
