Kahnawake Residency Law to enter �regular� Community Decision Making Process


The Kahnaw�:ke Legislative Coordinating Commission (KLCC) wishes to advise the community that the Kahnaw�:ke Residency Law (�the Law�) has been re-submitted through the �regular� Community Decision Making Process (CDMP). The request was signed by Iets�nhaienhs Kahsennenhawe Sky-Deer, the Lead on the Heritage Portfolio, on 17, Ohiar�:ha/June 2020.

The Law was confirmed as a �Type I � Urgent� on January 9, 2017, and was enacted on 17, Ohiar�:ha/June 2019 as Mohawk Council Resolution #1/2019-2020. Legislation passed using the Urgent process, by regulation, must be re-submitted through the �regular� CDMP within a year of passage.

The Kahnaw�:ke Residency Law was created from the residency component of the Kanien�keh�:ka of Kahnaw�:ke Law. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the KLCC is studying ways to meet requirements of the CDMP and will bring forth some options on ways to conduct community consultations during this challenging time.
