NOTICE IS GIVEN, pursuant to section 6 of the First Nations Fiscal Management Act (hereafter referred to as the “FNFMA”), that Makwa Sahgaiehcan First Nation (“The First Nation”) proposes to enact the Makwa Sahgaiehcan First NationProperty Assessment Law, 2017 and the Makwa Sahgaiehcan First Nation Property Taxation Law, 2017 (hereafter referred to as the “Proposed Laws”).


DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED LAWS:  The Proposed Laws are a property taxation law and a property assessment law, both made under the authority of subsection 5(1) of the FNFMA.  The property assessment law provides for the assessment and valuation of interests in land on the reserve lands of the First Nation, including appointing assessors, inspecting property, preparing assessment rolls, and mailing assessment notices.  The property assessment law also provides a process for reconsideration of assessments and for a right of appeal to an independent assessment review board.  The property taxation law establishes a taxation regime that taxes interests in land in the reserve, and includes provisions for exemptions, grants, preparing tax rolls and tax notices, the levy of penalties and interest on unpaid taxes, and the collection and enforcement of unpaid taxes.


A COPY OF THE PROPOSED LAWS may be obtained from Sonia Kytwayhat, Lands Manager at the Makwa Sahgaiehcan First Nation band office.
