Additional Tobacco Agreement Focus Meeting Scheduled


The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne is informing the community that an additional focus meeting has been scheduled to review the proposed draft Tobacco Regulation and Revenue Agreement.

Since 2013, the MCA received funding from the Government of Ontario for the development of a Tobacco Regulatory Framework which facilitated the development of the Akwesasne Oien:kwa Kaianerenhsera (Akwesasne Tobacco Law).

In December 2017, MCA and the Government of Ontario established the process to negotiate a Tobacco Final Agreement and the proposed Tobacco Regulation and Revenue Sharing Agreement was presented to Council on April 9, 2018.

During the Focus Meeting, a line-by-line reading of the proposed Tobacco Regulation and Revenue Sharing Agreement between the Government of Ontario and the Mohawk Council will be reviewed and thoroughly explained.

The meeting will take place:

Friday, April 27, 2018

5:00 – 9:00 p.m.

St. Regis Recreation (Kana:takon District)

For more information, please contact the Department of Tehotiennawakon at 613-575-2250.
