First Nations Finances
First Nations finances in Canada.

- "First Nations finances bill called Tory 'colonialism'" Winnipeg Free Press. November 25, 2011. Legislation to force First Nations to publicize audited financial statements and band council salaries is colonialist and might be illegal, Manitoba's grand chief said Thursday. The bill was introduced in the House of Commons Wednesday afternoon and will require all First Nations to publicize via the Internet their annual audited financial statements and schedules of salaries paid to chiefs and councils. This must be done within 120 days of the end of each fiscal year. Failure to comply can result in losing federal funding.
