Joint Chiefs and Councils

The Environment Office serves the Joint Chiefs and Councils (Joint Council) of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation and their respective communities and membership. Joint Council consists of the leadership from both the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation (Neyaashiinigmiing; Nawash; Cape Croker) and the Chippewas of Saugeen First Nation (Saugeen), encompassing both chiefs and all councillors. Chiefs and councillors are elected every two years as defined by the Indian Act; Neyaashiinigmiing’s council was elected in 2017 and Saugeen’s council in 2016.
