Public Notification Service

The First Nations Gazette (the “Gazette”) provides an online service for the publication of notices respecting aboriginal matters. The public notification service is available to anyone wanting to post a public notice within the accepted categories of notices.  This includes, but is not limited to, First Nation governments, other governments, government institutions, Aboriginal organizations, and the private sector. Public notices are published in Part 1 of the Gazette.

Examples of notices include

  • proposed First Nations tax rates;
  • notice of band elections;
  • consultations and public input;
  • section 6 notice under the First Nations Fiscal Management Act (notice of proposed local revenue laws and invitation to make representations);
  • announcement of newly appointed Chief Executive Officer to an aboriginal institution;
  • Hearing Order issued by a review panel for a pipeline project.

*For information on publishing section 81 (Indian Act) by-laws in the First Nations Gazette, please contact us at:

Register to Post Notices Confirm your registration Submit Notice

The First Nations Gazette verifies the identity of clients who wish to post notices. This verification is necessary to protect the integrity of the Gazette and to prevent fraudulent submissions. The same account is used to submit First Nation laws, by-laws and other enactments for publication in Part 2 of Gazette.

During the account registration process, users will be asked to provide some personal information (which includes name, organization, email, address, contact numbers and language preference). After submitting the information, users will receive an account registration confirmation link.

Email verification ensures that the correct contact information is on file, since all notifications relating to postings will be sent via email.


A representative from the Gazette will send an email and verify the telephone number provided. Once the account has been verified, a user can log in and start submitting notices.


Through a registered account, there are two options for submitting a notice for publication:

  1. Upload a file (in .doc or .docx only); or
  2. Draft a notice directly in the browser with the text editor (the easier option).

Notices are reviewed for content and grammar. The need for corrections may result in a notice being rejected with a request it be re-submitted after changes are made.

Any notice which does not meet the submission requirements of the Gazette will be rejected. Details of submission requirements are found in the Policy.

You must be a registered user to post notice!

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.
