Lax Kw’alaams Band Gift 2020
The Mayor and Council of the Lax Kw’alaams Band is pleased to announce a one-time gift in the amount of $500 per member to help start the New Year off in a good way.
Eligible applicants must be Lax Kw’alaams Band members registered as such on November 30, 2019. For minors under the age of 18 as of November 30, 2019, applications must be made by the parent or official guardian on their behalf. Individuals over the age of 18 as of November 30, 2019 must make their own application, either individually or with a spouse. Further documentation may be required if there is a shared custody arrangement in place.
All applicants must complete the attached “Gift Application Form” in full. Please print clearly to reduce delays in processing payments. Ensure your current and correct mailing address is included on the application as all cheques will be mailed. Applications are available on-line at http://laxkwalaams.ca/lax-kwalaams-band-gift-2020/ or may be picked up at either the Band Office in the community or Lax Kw’alaams Business Development office in Prince Rupert. All applications must be either delivered to the Band Office during normal business hours, or scanned and emailed to [email protected], or faxed to 250-625-3246. Final cut-off for applications is February 28, 2020.
Applications will be processed as they are received. It is critical that the information is complete and clearly legible. Due to the impending Christmas closure of the office, it is anticipated that most applications will not be processed until sometime in January 2020. Please do not call the office to enquire on the status of your application as this will just slow down the processing. Submit application by only one method, as duplication of receipt creates delays in processing.
Thank you and enjoy the holidays and all the best in the New Year!by
