The Matrimonial Real Property Law committee has been hard at work over the last while to analyse the survey results and start work on the law. In the course of reviewing responses to the surveys several additional questions came up that resulted in the creation of a supplemental survey. The purpose is to dig a little deeper into some of the issues raised in the original surveys.
All four original surveys are available on the MRP page of the Nawash website in electronic/online format, or for download to your device for printing. The supplemental survey is also available on the same page. At this time, we ask that you take a few moments to fill out the supplemental survey – it’s quite short. If you have not yet filled out the original four surveys, you are invited to spend a few minutes doing that as well. All surveys can be obtained in paper format by contacting Nuala Robinson, MRP Coordinator, at the band office (519-534-1689). Nuala is also available to answer any questions you may have, or to set up a time to make a personal presentation on MRP to you and your family or workgroup.
The committee wishes to thank everyone who has already found the new survey and filled it out. We are confident that with your help we will be able to create a law that truly reflects the values and traditions of the Chippewas of Nawash. Our website address is www.nawash.ca/mrp and the link for the surveys is on the right side of the page under the title “Documents”. Remember: We can’t do it without you!
Have a very Merry Christmas and all the best for a very Happy New Year!
