 In Uncategorized

Canada’s New Government announced today the Governor-in-Council appointment of C. T. (Manny) Jules as the Chief Commissioner of the First Nations Tax Commission.

Mr. Jules will lead one of the four First Nation institutions created through the First Nations Fiscal and Statistical Management Act (FSMA). The institutions are designed to provide First Nations with the practical tools available to other levels of government for modern fiscal management. These institutions will enable First Nations that choose to use their services to participate more actively in the Canadian economy. The Act received Royal Assent on March 23, 2005 and came into force on April 1, 2006.

“Mr. Jules is a community leader and a pioneer when it comes to First Nation tax regimes ” said Jim Prentice, Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development and Federal Interlocutor for Métis and non-Status Indians. “His leadership and determination in the development of these institutions was invaluable. On behalf of Canada’s New Government, I wish to congratulate Mr Jules on his appointment.”

The First Nations Tax Commission is the successor to the Indian Taxation Advisory Board. It will support First Nations property tax regimes and ensure they are administratively efficient and harmonized with the rest of the country.
