Chief and Council Working Conditions 2020-2022

On November 25, 2020, the newly elected Chief and Council conducted their first Duly Convened meeting.  One of the priority of discussions was Council-working conditions.  Chief and Council consider it necessary to establish a framework of working conditions applicable to Councillors currently in office during their term from November 2020 ending at the next general elections.  

Councillors had the opportunity of opting for a two-year contract, which ends at the end of their mandate in November 2022.  The purpose of the Working Conditions for Councillors is to provide political support on various governance issues and files.

During the councillors working contracts, they must complete the following:

• Councillors must have regular office hours and be reasonably available on an “on-call” basis, no less than 35hours a week
• Councillors who hold an assignment must submit a weekly activity report to the Office of Chief and Council
• Councillors must provide regular reports to Council
• Council must provide regular reporting to the Community
• Workplans must be developed for the files they are working on and submitted

Working conditions for Councillors are not requirements of all council.  Should a councillor wish to select the two-year contract and commit fulltime, the opportunity is there.

Notice to community members,


Please be advised that the LMG will be closed tomorrow for Remembrance Day, all essential operations will continue as usual.


Event announcement from the Listuguj Veteran Memorial Committee is copied below.

Listuguj Remembrance Day Ceremony

In light of the recent spike in transmission rates of COVID-19 within the region, the Listuguj Veteran Memorial Committee (LVMC) have decided that it would be the community’s best interest to cancel the annual Remembrance Day event in Listuguj. The decision is in line with best practices and with the guidance from the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government Unified Command Center team and with the LVMC.

In its place, the Listuguj Veterans Memorial Committee will be honouring our Listuguj Veteran’s of past and present with a turkey dinner drive-thru, starting at 12:00 p.m. as a reminder to the community there are a limited number of meals available.

On November 11, drive up to the front of the AGS, and a turkey dinner with all its fixings including desert will be brought to you by our committee members and volunteers! We ask for those arriving to please remain in your vehicle, and we will serve you.

The event is open to all our Veterans and their family members and to the community members of Listuguj. As well, this event will be following COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

This event is graciously sponsored by the Natural Resources Directorate of the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government and the meal will be catered by Krysten Barnaby.

We hope that next year we will return to our traditional services honouring the men and women who have served and continue to proudly serve in uniform with Canada and the United States.
