Male:Female Ratio – Chief and Council (2016)

Notes: The figures are as of December 31 of each year from data recorded in the Band Governance Management System (BGMS). Electoral Officers, selected and hired by First Nations, are responsible for completing a report with election results and submitting to INAC to be recorded in BGMS.

Limitations: There is occasionally a delay between an election and the Electoral Officer Report being submitted which can cause a temporary gap in BGMS.
