Rates Increase Justification

Prepared by: Enoch Cree Nation (the “First Nation”)

June 10, 2019

Justification for the Rates Increase

This year, the First Nation’s annual property tax bills will increase beyond the criteria established in the First Nations Tax Commission’s Standards for First Nation Annual Tax Rates Laws, 2016.

As described in a letter from the First Nation’s Chief Financial Officer, the First Nation’s cost of providing local services has increased significantly from the previous year, as a result of, among other things:

  • A new water supply from the City of Edmonton and associated infrastructure; new pump house, and installation of meters
  • Chief Lapotac Road construction and other road maintenance; and
  • New School construction;

The tax rates are being increased to partially offset these increased costs.

Use the Name Search to verify a First Nation’s official name and look up variant names.

For consistency and ease of reference, the FNG website uses only the officially registered First Nation names and band numbers.

More information on band names and band name changes can be obtained from Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada.
