About Our Land Code

Land Code Development

This is a First Nation-driven project. First Nations that go through this process develop a unique Land Code that reflects the laws, priorities, and traditions specific to their community.


The Land Code is completed, and all eligible voting members, both on and off the reserve, are being asked to vote on the Land Code.


Nothing is finalized without community approval through a vote.


Please review the important information below. 

OCTOBER 19 to DECEMBER 9, 2023
Lytton First Nation voting members
will be asked if they approve:
  • The Lytton First Nation Land Code, and

A “YES” vote means that LFN will govern its own reserve lands under the Lytton First Nation Land Code.
