Taking Action, Getting Results

Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation Leadership works with the membership to create positive and sustainable change. We make sure our partners are empowered by creating opportunities for individuals and our community.

Members of Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation grant power to an elected Chief and Council, which form the political arm for Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation, to govern the land and property of the membership.

Chief and Council deal with governance and policy issues in the community.

Supported by the administrative function, the Chief and Council's responsibilities include program and service delivery, financial management, policy development, and planning and control systems. They negotiate with the federal government and work to increase federal funding and bring new money and programs into the community.
