Tioweró:ton Development and Cabin Ownership Procedures

May 8, 2020

The cabin construction application process in the 2004/2005 Tioweró:ton Policy has been amended and replaced with the Tioweró:ton Cabin Development and Ownership Procedures.
The new procedure will require the applicant to complete a 30-day communal posting and be approved prior to selecting a cabin construction site, similar to the Land Allotment Procedures. The 30-day communal posting will also apply to cabin sales/purchases. The new procedures prevent any cabin owners who have sold their cabin to acquire a new cabin construction site.

It is our inherent right to hunt for sustenance when needed, however, for safety reasons, hunting should not occur near any populated areas or between dusk and dawn by means of “jack lighting”.  For conservation purposes, the hunting of moose cows are only permitted every 5 years beginning in September 2005 and the hunting of moose calves is prohibited.  It is strongly encouraged that proper caliber firearms be used when hunting.
