Elders’ Representative to the LMG Chief and Council
In recognition of the role that Elders have in our community, the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government Council has a seat at the Council table for an Elder. The Listuguj Elders’ Council, through consensus, nominates an Elder to participate at the regular Council meetings as an ex officio member.
