Community Notice AKWESASNE MEMBERSHIP BOARD
The Akwesasne Membership Board is now accepting Residency Applications for Non-Native Residency Permits. The Residency Law represents one of the measures adopted by the community and the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne to control the residency of non-members within the Territory of Akwesasne in order to preserve its culture, traditions and values. The community wishes that only those who are registered members of Akwesasne shall have the right to reside permanently on the Territory.
However, the community is prepared to extend the privilege of temporary residency to non-members, under certain conditions. The Residency Law shall govern such privilege.
Applications are available at the Office of Vital Statistics, Cornwall Island Administration Building #3 (CIA #3) Kawehno:ke. Office hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
